In Cigarettes and Chocolate, this brilliant writer (The English Patient, Truly, Madly, Deeply), takes a humorous and human look at London life in the 1980’s that tests the social responsibilities of urbanites, who as Minghella said, quoting Oscar Wilde, “know the price of everything and the value of nothing.” Coupled with Hang Up, this is a stunning evening of two rarely performed works originally written to be performed on radio

READ Gil Kaan’s interview from BETTER LEMONS entitled:  “DIRECTOR MICHAEL PERETZIAN ON ANTHONY MINGHELLA, CHANGING CAREERS & HELMING CIGARETTES & CHOCOLATE/HANG UP”

 

Congratulations on this beautiful review…for both plays!
“Terrific. Language used passionately and brilliantly…it’s the words that make these plays work and the actors have complete mastery over them. They rival anything you’ll find on bigger commercial stages” – Santa Monica Daily Press

 

Los Angeles Daily News:  “Michael Peretzian directs with enough subtext and reactions to start the audience’s imagination moving and filling in any blanks…Under Peretzian’s direction, the performances are evocative, clear, simple and moving. “
