The weather was chilly night. I wore spandex pants, nice blouse, sandals, and a light jacket.

Well done. Hold interest throughout the two acts, two and a half hours. A few unexpected twists.

One of the most amazing plays I have had the pleasure of seeing. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would. Fabulous acting and story line even though I was watching a dysfunctional family arguing.

Quotes & Highlights

“It’s surprising that anyone can concoct yet another black comedy about a woefully dysfunctional family, but give Andrew Dolan a gold star … Under director Scott Alan Smith’s nurturance, the exemplary cast morphs into a credible family, with every lingering hurt and happy shared memory clearly visible.” -_Back Stage West _(Critic’s Pick)
“Playwright Andrew Dolan puts his new play, _That Good Night _at the Road Theatre Company, neatly through the goalposts … Director Scott Alan Smith’s emotionally acute staging scores huge laughs.” —_Los Angeles Times _
_"__That Good Night_ is dark comedy at its finest. It’ll undoubtedly make you laugh, it may make you cry, and if you let it, it just might tear you apart."-nohoartsdistrict.com
“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. Andrew Nolan’s roller coaster play will have many of us comparing notes with our own families’ odysseys through the last several decades.” —Burbank ’N Beyond
That Good Night is Ovation recommended.
