Tony Kushner

Published by Theatre Communications Group

9 Male 4 Female

1998. Afghanistan. An Englishwoman's discovery of an outdated guidebook propels her on an outlandish journey to the heart of Afghanistan

Her ineffectual husband and emotionally detached daughter follow her trail when she disappears in mysterious circumstances. In their quest for truth the lines between the real and the unreal, the political and the personal, the public and the private, the psychological and the sociological are intentionally blurred and artfully ambiguous

"This compelling evening testifies that Mr Kushner can still deliver his sterling brand of goods; a fusion of politics, poetry and boundless empathy transformed through language into passionate, juicy theater" - New York Times "Kushner's first big work on a great big canvas since Angels in America . This eerily timely work about Afghanistan is comparably mesmerising and mournful, vast and intimate, emotionally generous and stylistically fabulist, wildly verbal, politically progessive and scarily well informed" - Newsday

"What a feast of a play! No playwright in the English language has a more consuming curiosity or a greater passion for language than Kushner... Brilliant" - Chicago Tribune
