David Lindsay-Abaire’s dramedy brims over with the sort of convivial, bluntly funny blue-collar bonhomie that can turn corrosive in an instant. There aren’t really any good people in Good People, but there are some rattling good fights and a fascinating exploration of American notions of class, and Jackie Maxwell’s explosively funny, and then just-plain-explosive production makes sure the social undertones resonate even as it showcases a stageful of nuanced, affecting performances.
