Dollar deal: See the Rep’s ‘Good People’ for a buck

Seattle Rep, currently staging David Lindsay-Abaire’s popular play “Good People,” is offering a Dollar Store Deal for patrons. Starting Wednesday, the theater is making 25, $1 tickets available for each performance until the show ends on March 31.

The tickets are only available the day of each show, after noon, through the Rep box office, 206-443-2222 or in person. Lindsay-Abaire said in a Seattle Times interview that he drew on his own roots when writing “Good People,” which concerns the struggle of a single mother trying to make ends meet working at a dollar store. He said that “Good People” is in part a response to the complaint, “Why aren’t more Americans writing about class? Why do Brits do it and we don’t?” He also noted it was ironic that his “Good People” heroine wouldn’t be able to afford tickets to see his work. Seattle Rep agrees, and the deal was born.

Performances are Wednesday-Sunday evenings, with matinees on most Saturdays-Sundays and select Wednesdays. Info here.
