Goodman Theatre adds new play by Noah Haidle to 2013–14 season
Before many theaters have announced their 2012–13 seasons, the Goodman Theatre is going public with plans for 2013–14. Goodman, in conjunction with California's South Coast Repertory, said today that the two theaters will jointly produce the world premiere of Smokefall, a new play by Noah Haidle (Vigils) that was commissioned by the Goodman.
The coproduction, directed by Anne Kauffman, will bow next spring as part of South Coast Rep's 2012–13 season before coming to the Goodman the following season. Haidle's time-bending family drama received a staged reading last fall as part of the Goodman's New Stages Amplified series. Casting is yet to be determined.
