"iHo is a vast, rich work of public-intellectual engagement. . . The values built into this beautifully inquiring play operate outside of common dramatic economies. Kushner's carefully organized labor of love is a spur to the active mind."--Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

Gus Marcantonio, a retired longshoreman, summons his adult children home to the family's Brooklyn brownstone to discuss his recent decision to commit suicide. With his trademark mix of soaring intel-lect, searing emotion, and biting wit, Kushner unfurls an epic tale of revolu-tion, radicalism, family, love, sex, politics, real estate, unions, and debts both unpaid and unpayable.



Tony Kushner's plays include Angels in America, A Bright Room Called Day, Slavs!, Homebody/Kabul, and the musical Caroline, or Change with composer Jeanine Tesori. He has adapted Corneille's The Illusion, Ansky's The Dybbuk, and Brecht's The Good Person of Szechuan and Mother Courage and Her Children. He wrote the screenplay for Mike Nichols's film of Angels in America, and the screenplays for Steven Spielberg's Munich, Lincoln, West Side Story, and The Fabelmans. His books include Wrestling with Zion, co-edited with Alisa Solomon; Brundibar, illustrated by Maurice Sendak; and The Art of Maurice Sendak, 1980 to the Present. Kushner was awarded a National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama. He lives in Manhattan with his husband, Mark Harris.
