Set in the break room of a quasi-governmental organization, Smoke and Mirrors follows Anita and a handful of her co-workers through the course of a seemingly normal day, complete with bad cafeteria food, inept bosses, inappropriate e-mails and blood-stained lab-coats. Smoke and Mirrors mingles the comic with the nightmarish, creating a world composed of patriotism and cupcakes, of paranoia and air freshener---a world uncomfortably close to our own.
"In Smoke and Mirrors, playwright Joseph Goodrich conjures up a wickedly amusing portrait of a stultifying but nerve-racking workplace. –Backstage.com"If Kafka scripted an episode of The Office, it might resemble Joseph Goodrich’s bizarre and often intriguing Smoke and Mirrors, set in the smoking room of a nebulous American corporation." – Time Out New York
