MADISON-Ann Leary, "The Good House"
TIME: 7:00 pm
How can you prove you're not an alcoholic?
It's like trying to prove you're not a witch.
Hildy Good is a townie. A lifelong resident of an historic community on Boston’s North Shore, she knows pretty much everything about everyone. Hildy is a descendant of one of the witches hung in nearby Salem, and is believed, by some, to have inherited psychic gifts. Not true, of course; she’s just good at reading people. Hildy is good at lots of things. A successful real-estate broker, mother and grandmother, her days are full. But her nights have become lonely ever since her daughters, convinced their mother was drinking too much, staged an intervention and sent her off to rehab. Now she’s in recovery—more or less.
