Actors Tamsin Greig and Sara Kestelman, Writer Tony Kushner, Director Michael Boyd and Designer Tom Piper talk about their latest play The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures, or iHo, which opens 18 October.
New York, 2007. Gus Marcantonio, retired longshoreman, former trade union organiser, renaissance man, feels that the world has turned its back on everything he has fought for in life. With his sister, he summons his three grown children home, trailing the appendages of their chaotic lives, to their Brooklyn brownstone for the most unusual family reunion yet…
Shot through with characteristic wit and searing passion, Tony Kushner’s latest play is at once the story of a family grappling to find meaning in a landscape they no longer recognise and an epic exploration of humanity’s compulsive search for Utopias, both personal and political.
Pulitzer Prize winner Tony Kushner makes a highly anticipated return to Hampstead where his Slavs! debuted in 1994. His other plays include the classic Angels in America and screenplays include the Oscar nominated Lincoln and Munich.
Olivier Award winner Michael Boyd’s recent directing credits include Orfeo (Royal Opera House/Roundhouse) and Marlowe’s Tamburlaine (Broadway). Boyd was the Artistic Director of The RSC from 2002 until 2012.
