A devoted smoker reaches her moment of truth: extinguish the habit! Is being a quitter for life attainable, or will she be undone by the Great Addiction?

Nina’s acts reflect her traditional theatrical background in combination with training in physical comedy and music. In addition to her body of solo work, she is a founding member of the award-winning clown trio Those in the Nose.

Neither hypnotics nor patches seem to remedy the smoking addiction.
Deborah Kaufman gives Nina a ‘helping hand’ with her over whelming problem.
