“The Big Chill” meets “This is Us” in Rachel Bonds’ play, “Goodnight Nobody,” running Jan. 10 through Feb. 9 in McCarter Theatre Center’s Berlind Theatre in Princeton, N.J.
In the “deeply moving and funny” world premiere featuring two-time Emmy Award-winner Dana Delany, directed by Tyne Rafaeli, a group of old friends reconnect after years apart. They reminisce with wild abandon, until the things they aren’t telling each other come hurtling to the surface.
In “Goodnight Nobody,” Bonds leans in to a variety of relevant and timely themes. What is the cost of pursuing artistic excellence? Is there a connection between creative brilliance and mental illness? Can a female artist – however disciplined – ever attain freedom from the fact of her own womanhood?
The cast also includes Ken Marks, Nate Miller, Saamer Usmani and Ariel Woodwiss.
The creative team includes Kimie Nishikawa, Ásta Bennie Hostetter, Jen Schriever and Daniel Kluger. Dramaturgy was provided by Christine Scarfuto, with casting by Kelly Gillespie, CSA. Alison Cote and Christine Whalen are the stage managers.
