'After a faltering first scene or two, Tony Kushner’s new play becomes one of the most absorbing dramas on the London stage. The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures, or iHo, is a giant, fiercely argued investigation of American family life and leftwing politics. The title tips its hat to Bernard Shaw. The profession of its paterfamilias – he is a retired longshoreman – nods at Arthur Miller’s A View From the Bridge. Debates race through the dialogue: forensic, but firmly rooted in character.'
