SUMMIT, NJ  – Alliance Repertory Theatre Company will present the New Jersey premiere of Christian O'Reilly's emotional roller coaster "The Good Father," beginning July 13 at MONDO.

At Rachel’s New Year's Eve party, most of the guests are in the kitchen admiring photos of their babies. In the other room, two lonely strangers find themselves cut off from the rest. Jane (Lilli Marques) was invited because she knows the people in the kitchen. Tim (Brendan Scullin) was invited because he painted the kitchen. The pair spend a drunken night together and a few weeks later she calls him with some unexpected news.

"The Good Father" is, according to the play's Director Michael Driscoll, "A voyage of discovery that will take the audience through many emotions that are both identifiable and unmistakably human.”

Running through July 28, "The Good Father" features performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Thursday, July 19 at 8 p.m. For reservations, call 908-472-1502 or visit alliancerep.org. MONDO is located at 426 Springfield Avenue.
