When a woman welcomes an uninvited guest to Thanksgiving dinner, an entire family is challenged and changed in Sovereign Body, an ambitious new drama from playwright Emilie Beck and the Road Theatre Company. Ranging in style from dream play to naturalism, Sovereign Body is a haunting look at a family's struggle to heal in the face of daunting adversity. Scott Alan Smith (That Good Night, Lady) directs this latest work from the celebrated writer of Number of People (which starred Ed Asner in the recent Pasadena Playhouse production) and Habeas Corpus.

“Oh no, not another play about a dysfunctional family! Well, this one is really worth seeing, not just for the well-written dialogue by Andrew Dolan, but by the stupendous performances by a cast from The Road Theatre Company in North Hollywood.” —StageHappenings.com
“That Good Night [is] a magnificent Irish family brawl, brought to tender and rip-roaring life by the superb cast and Scott Alan Smith’s assured direction.
