Noah Haidle

Noah Haidle’s latest play, Smokefall, examines life’s big questions through the prism of an ordinary Midwestern family. Inspired in equal parts by Thornton Wilder’s simple evocative humanity, Samuel Beckett’s bleak poetry and Haidle’s own wild theatrical imagination, it begins on an average morning as the family is getting ready for their day, and then telescopes in—and out—to look at both the minutia of daily life and the broader implications of choices made for the individual, the family and the community. In a recent conversation with Tanya Palmer, the Goodman’s director of new play development, Haidle spoke about the genesis of the play and where it fits into the trajectory of his own burgeoning career as a playwright and screenwriter.
