Life in Boston’s Southie neighborhood is no joke for single mother Margaret Walsh. Fired from her job and facing eviction, she doesn’t know whether to risk it all on a game of bingo or join a drunken old classmate on a warm bit of sidewalk. Will she catch a break from the cranky young manager at the Dollar Store or the landlady with a craft business selling googly-eyed rabbits? Or the man from her past, now a successful doctor, who left town at a crucial moment long ago? With his signature humorous glow, Lindsay-Abaire explores the struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next to nothing in America.
