"Gorgeous"
– CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Sept 20 – Oct 26, 2014 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours including intermission

The number one play on the Chicago Tribune’s “Best Theater of 2013” list returns for an encore production with its acclaimed original cast.

Change is in the air as Violet prepares to bring twin boys into the world. Inside her womb, her unborn sons contemplate their future, while the world around her is in transformation: her husband is secretly planning to leave her, her father is slipping into senility and her daughter has taken a vow of silence. Haunting and slyly funny, Smokefall explores the lives of this family in a lyrical treatise on the fragility of life and the power of love.
