Goodnight Sunshine

Company: The Drafts
Directed by: Michael Rau

By Terence Patrick Hughes
Goodnight Sunshine is a farcical tragedy about fame, family, and the impossibility of going home again. Jackie and Billy Allen were a big comedy team in the 1950’s and after Billy left for Hollywood; Jackie hit it big on TV…for a little while. In present day 1985, Jackie is on the eve of a big comeback only to be reunited with his daughter, Becky, who was placed in an asylum twenty years earlier and has now written a sordid family memoir.

Terence Patrick Hughes' Goodnight Sunshine was part of Horse Trade spring playwriting workshop earlier this year, and a full staged reading is being presented Monday, August 20 at 7pm in the Red Room.
