Change is in the air as Violet prepares to bring twin boys into the world. Insider 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. Goodman Theatre's world-premiere production of Smokefall (October 5 - November 3, 2013 in the Owen Theatre and remounted by popular demand September 20 - October 26, 2014 in the Albert Theatre) was hailed as "gorgeous...four stars (out of four)" (Chicago Tribune), "highly recommended...a glorious play, took my breath away" (Chicago Sun-Times) with "radiant performances and exquisite design" (Time Out Chicago).
