by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, is a play that aims to topple moral stereotypes and defy traditional measures of goodness.

But her attempt to hit up “Dr. Mike,” who left working-class “Southie” for the manicured lawns of Chestnut Hill, takes a surprising turn when Margie realizes the power of a secret from her old flame’s past.
