Violet is pregnant with twins. Her husband, Daniel, is losing interest. Her father, The Colonel, is losing his mind. And her mute daughter Beauty has lost her appetite, choosing to subsist on impossible things like dirt and paint. Eventually, we go inside Violet’s womb to check on her unborn boys; we jump forward 70 years and meet Beauty after she’s traveled the world. Across three acts and four generations, the dizzying Smokefall forces us to examine how our decisions reverberate in the lives of the people we love. It’s a surreal, hilarious, startling play that shows us all the ways our world is broken, then asks us to love it anyway.
