About Good Faith

Can the stories of a small American city tell the truth of an entire nation? In 2009, the Supreme Court ruled that the City of New Haven violated the civil rights of a group of firefighters who were passed over for promotion. Two national election cycles later, the lead plaintiff, now an instructor at the Fire Academy, schools new recruits on the methods and values of the department. Across town in a Greek diner, two former Fire Department colleagues continue to debate the personal and political impact of the decision. Through distinct, at times directly oppositional, individual voices, Good Faith reveals the soul of New Haven.

Good Faith, a play inspired by the landmark labor case Ricci v. DeStefano, is an imaginative response to transcripts, interviews, and the many histories of New Haven

Yale Repertory Theatre is supported in part by the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development.
