  • Defunkt Theatre 4319 SE Hawthorne Blvd Portland United States (map)

By Noah Haidle

October 18-November 16, 2019

Directed by Patrick Walsh

“If Thornton Wilder had dropped acid, he might have written Smokefall,” wrote Variety of our season opener, and indeed this most unusual installment in the tradition of plays about the American Family could be seen as a 21 st century offspring of Our Town. Over the course of a funny and deeply moving evening, five actors explore the mythology of one family across many decades from the perspectives of those who left, those who stayed behind, and even two twins in utero. Patrick Walsh directs this Portland premiere that speaks to anyone who has ever had (or yearned for) a family.
