Story/Teller Arts: Tony Kushner with Oskar Eustis

The Center for Fiction is thrilled to welcome legendary playwright Tony Kushner (Angels in America) to celebrate the first print publication of The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures (or iHo). In this play—which opened at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis in 2009 and had its Off-Broadway premiere at The Public Theater in 2011—Gus Marcantonio, a retired longshoreman, summons his adult children home to the family’s Brooklyn brownstone to discuss his recent decision to commit suicide. Kushner will discuss his epic tale of revolution, radicalism, family, love, sex, politics, real estate, unions, and debts both unpaid and unpayable, full of soaring intellect, searing emotion, and biting wit. Kushner will be joined in conversation by long-time collaborator Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director of the Public Theater and award-winning director.

in collaboration with theatre communications group.
