Yale Repertory Theatre (1120 Chapel Street)
Yale Rep presents the world premiere of Good Goods by Christina Anderson, selected by American Theatre magazine as an up-and-coming artist “whose work will be transforming America’s stages for decades to come.” Acclaimed director Tina Landau, an award-winning ensemble member of Steppenwolf Theatre Company who recently staged Superior Donuts on Broadway, makes her Yale Rep debut.
Amidst the cluttered shelves of a family-owned general store in a small Black town that doesn’t appear on any map, four lost souls reunite. Partnerships dissolve, alliances shift, and romances ignite as a tragic accident unleashes the town’s mysterious history. Blurring the line between body and spirit, Good Goods is an otherworldly love story of the (dis)possessed.
