"Cherry Smoke" by James McManus

Gurnet Theatre Project presents the New England premiere of "Cherry Smoke" by James McManus and directed by Brett Marks. After two years, GTP returns to the Boston theatre scene with an explosive new drama, winner of the Princess Grace Award for Play-writing. 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 and spanning decades, the lives of four young souls are put to the test in this poetic and potent new work. Performances Wednesday & Thursday at 7:30PM; Friday & Saturday at 8PM; matinees Saturday & Sunday at 3PM. Tickets may be purchased at the door or online at www.ovationtix.com.
