Smoke Gets In Your House

90 minutes
Dark Comedy
2f, 2m


The lives of two couples are thrown into upheaval when a brushfire threatens their upscale Southern California homes. They must confront what’s really important to them — Material items? Careers? Relationships? SMOKE GETS IN YOUR HOUSE treats the natural disaster seriously while still finding enough absurdity to make this play a genuine dark comedy.
