Good Thing, a comedy written by Jessica Goldberg and brought to the stage by Red Ladders Productions, comes to the Hudson Mainstage. The play gives lyrical voice to those who are at a loss for direction and desperate for a sense of meaning and fulfillment -- in other words, all of us some of the time and some of us all of the time. Brian Swibel directs.
Praise for Good Thing:
"...playwright Jessica Goldberg puts forth an ambitiously eclectic aesthetic, a blend of gritty social drama, poetic humor and unsubtle existential contemplation... Good Thing demonstrates her worthwhile voice in examining lost, angst-ridden or drug-addled people who genuinely wish to improve their lives but don't know how...With an assured sense of what makes great theater, Goldberg gives her actors plenty of length of tightrope to leap from..." -- Variety
