Featuring Marcus Sakey (Good People). 21+. Part of Columbia College's Story Week Festival of Writers. "You find a chest of gold, you better know there's a monster guarding it," says Jack Witkowski, the monster in Good People. The good people he's explaining the facts of life to are Tom and Anna Reed, Lincoln Square home owners living at the limit of their paychecks and credit but doing OK. Then they happen upon the cash Witkowski and his gang ripped off in a practically victimless crime--robbing a high-end drug dealer and the smarmy Hollywood star he's selling to--and they take it. The coils begin to tighten as armed robbers, drug dealers, and police circle the hapless duo to take it back. As Anna says to Tom as they plot against Witkowski, "We're not evil people, baby. We're just in over our head." --Patrick Daily
