White, working class Boston has become a big screen hot spot thanks to Ben Affleck and Dennis Lehane. Now, Southie-bred playwright David Lindsay-Abaire takes it to Broadway. He got his start writing absurdist plays, made his mark with "Shrek The Musical", and won a Pulitzer for his stage play "Rabbit Hole". Now he’s mining the gold and grit of his hometown — South Boston -- in the Broadway premier of his newest play, "Good People". In drawing the divide between white collar and working class Boston— Lindsay -Abaire ponders the fates of those who break out and those who get stuck. Is it a personal choice? Is our destiny at the whimsy of good and bad luck?

A Southie native, Lindsay-Abaire was one who got his break when he earned a highly competitive scholarship to Milton Academy. Our arts and culture contributor Alicia Anstead steps in as guest host and interviews David Lindsay-Abaire, a local boy who's become one of our quirkiest and most successful playwrights.
