The Goodman Theatre said Thursday that it will stage "Smokefall," a new play by Noah Haidle ("Vigils," "Mr. Marmalade") as part of its 2013-14 season. Anne Kauffman is scheduled to direct the piece, which is about three generations of a Michigan family (Haidle is from Michigan).
The show is being announced early because the title also is part of the 2012-13 season at the South Coast Repertory, located in Costa Mesa, Calif., where the show will premiere. The Goodman said that while the production will share a director and a physical production, the cast may or may not be the same.
"Smokefall' was commissioned by the Goodman and workshopped here last year.
