Working Theater

at Urban Stages
259 West 30th Street, New York, NY 10001

Molly Carden, Patrick Carroll, Julie Jesneck, and Vayu O'Donnell

Poverty, first kisses, boxing, and irrational hope combine in a brutal love story about four young people trying to grasp the American Dream. In this Princess Grace Award-winning play, James McManus captures the devastated remnants of the steel towns of his youth, channeling the frustrations of a working class without work. A combustion of the magical and the mundane, Cherry Smoke takes you to a world rarely seen on the New York stage.
