The Scripps Ranch Theatre continues its current performance season with two productions. Good People, written by David Lyndsay-Abaire, follows the life of Margie Walsh, a resident of a Boston neighborhood called Southie. Facing eviction and scrambling to catch a break, Margie thinks an old fling who’s made it out of Southie might be her ticket to a fresh new start – and she’ll risk what little she has left to find out. The show will run through Feb. 26.

The second upcoming production is Flemming (An American Thriller) by Sam Bobrick. A spoof of the film noir thrillers from the 1940s and ‘50s, the play tells the story of Henry Flemming, who sells his lucrative brokerage firm to become a detective. On his very first case, and to the horror of his wife, the Flemming living room begins to fill up with dead bodies. Even though Henry comes home more disheveled and beaten up each day, he couldn’t be happier. The show will run from March 31 to April 30.
