About this show

Depending on whom you ask, Tyler Evans was "a beloved best friend, grandson, mentor, and fiancée," or he was "a young Black man killed by a police officer." Desperate to control the contradicting narratives of his untimely passing, Tyler haunts his best friend as his other friends and relatives quibble over his legacy, seeking an elusive common ground. Goodnight, Tyler, written by B. J. Tindal, is a contemporary and unexpectedly humorous drama that is the winner of the 2019 Alliance/Kendeda National Graduate Playwriting Competition.
