The action takes place in the notorious “South Boston” neighborhood where Margie Walsh lives a hard-scrabble life, taking care of her disabled daughter, working at the local dollar store and playing bingo. When she loses her job, she visits an old high school flame who she claims owes her a good deed. Things get ugly and funny when she invades his home to see if he is still “Good People.”

I’m teaching July 7-12th deep play practices as part of Life.Art.Being Integrative Arts Festival

Festival Schedule 

The festival is an accessible and delightful week of devoting to what we love most — the wise earth, presence, embodiment, & authentic expression. Called”integrative arts” because these practices bring our whole self into the room and into greater integrity on the level of body/mind as well as spiritually & socially.982140_orig-1
