Presented by Gurnet Theatre Project at Boston Playwrights' Theatre
July 9 - July 24, 2010
After two years, GTP returns to the Boston theatre scene with an explosive new drama. Winner of the Princess Grace Award for Playwriting and set among the abandoned steel mills on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, CHERRY SMOKE is the story of Fish, a club fighter and ticking time bomb and his girlfriend Cherry, a runaway fortune teller who has been on her own since the age of ten. Along with Fish's brother Duffy and Duffy's wife, Bug, the couple struggles to balance their all-consuming passion for each other with the reality of their place in life. Moving back and forth in time, the lives of four young souls are put to the test in this poetic and potent new work.
