Pendleton King's Cocaine, first produced by the Provincetown Players, takes audiences back to 1916, a time when the burden of addiction was simply swept under the rug. King's play however is about so much more than a dependence on drugs. It questions what makes life worth living when two young individuals' find life too brittle to bear any longer, as they are unable to find the solace in cocaine they so strongly desire. . Drugs, prostitution and poverty plague a man and woman who find comfort in the love they share in a tiny attic room they can't afford, secluded from the world they have little success of becoming a part of.
