Streep, Monk and More To Star In New York Premiere Reading Of A GOOD SMOKE 6/14

Emmy and Academy Award Winnner Meryl Streep will star in the New York premiere reading of A GOOD SMOKE, written by Don Cummings. The reading, presented by Hare/Deux Productions (Kevin Spirtas, Producing Manager), will take place Sunday, June 14, 7:00 pm at The Public Theater (425 Lafayette Street, New York City).

"Mom isn't the center of attention anymore. Will she stop at nothing to regain that position? Mom drops her meds - cold-turkey - the day her daughter gives birth, resulting in severe drug withdrawal. As her daughter is wheeled into delivery, Mom is hauled off to the psych ward. Dad and their two sons are trying desperately to cope, but this family is functioning at its worst when it needs to be at its best. The ironic comedy of life burns into this dark drama to make - A GOOD SMOKE."

In addition to Streep, A GOOD SMOKE will star Henry Wolfe Gummer, Grace Gummer, Debra Monk, Joe Paulik and John Rothman. A GOOD SMOKE is written by Don Cummings (The Fat of the Land) and will be directed by Pam Mackinnon.
