Tiny Kushner reveals that Tony Kushner's mastery of the short form is as pronounced as his mastery of the epic

Replete with scintillating turns of phrase, rich in wit and wisdom, and branded with his trademark intelligence, here are five marvelous short plays by one of the most gifted playwrights of his generation ...

As the evening progresses, a musical comedy play is born

Only We Who Guard the Mystery Shall Be Unhappy - M2,F1

First Lady Laura Bush gives a reading to Iraqi children just prior to the 2003 invasion

As an Angel watches over the proceedings

Terminating or Sonnet LXXV or "Lass Meine Schmerzen Nicht Verloren Sein" or Ambivalence - M2,F2

While the pair's lovers hover in the ether

REVIEWS

"Tony Kushner's new work consists of five one-act playlets that feature both fictional characters and those borrowed from real life - including Dr Arnold Hutschnecker, who was Richard M Nixon's psychiatrist

Two plays have therapy sessions in them, actually

Three have dead people as characters

One takes place on the moon

All five, however, resonate on the subject of America and the moral complexities created for its citizens by its various advantages in the world ... Mr Kushner's fierce liberal conscience (he's Arthur Miller's heir, in that regard), colossally fanciful imagination and virtuosic gift for composing verbal arias are much in evidence" ~ Bruce Weber, The New York Times
