CHICAGO – Any night out in a big city has the potential to be a good night, the risk of being a bad night, and typically ends up somewhere in between … but only some nights can claim to be THAT NIGHT. So describes writer/director Zachary Trussell’s debut feature film, premiering at Chicago’s Logan Theatre on April 30th, 2022.

“That Night” takes place in the after hours atmosphere of Chicago and its suburbs. Stacey (Julio Alexander) and his bud Joey (Oscar Mansky) are hitting the night with parties and bars on the agenda. Stacey still carries a torch for his ex-galpal Lily (Julie Gester) while trying to figure out his next career move as an artist. There are proposals, potential pick-ups, fine artist encounters and a dog named Snowball. It’s THAT kind of NIGHT.

The cast includes Keenan Overkirk, Emily Sue Bengston, Michael C. Hyatt, Brynn Beveridge, Janaah Coates, Terrence Williams, Allie Wessel, Maureen Azzun, Alexander Louis and Kendall McCarthy.
