“Little Fish” – One Woman’s Search for a Cigarette Substitute

*** Recommended *** In its essence, “Little Fish” is a story about a young woman’s struggle to quit smoking.  I could relate – as could almost anyone who has gone through nicotine withdrawal.  Self-loathing is just one of the emotions that desperately surly person might be feeling.  That wasn’t enough for playwright Michael John LaChiusa, who set “Little Fish” post-9/11, trying to make it more than it is.  There is just no parallel between one woman’s search for a cigarette substitute and a community’s search for meaning after a senseless tragedy.  3 Spotlights
