It is physically and emotionally messy work, and conflicts between Avner and his team's handler, Ephraim, over information Avner doesn't want to provide only make things harder.

Homebody/Kabul by Tony Kushner( Book )

30 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Kabul, this play examines current day Afghanistan, its history, its long long-tortured relationship with the West and its current complex political and humanitarian crisis. As the story unfolds the Homebody, a bored, emotionally imprisoned but wildly intellectual English woman, finds refuge and escape in the alternate world Afghanistan, which she exoticizes in her mind's eye with the help of an out-of-date tourist guide book. Her mysterious disappearance prompts an ensuing search by her ineffectual husband and her emotionally detached daughter, who arrive in the foreign land unprepared for the adventures that await them. In their quest for truth and closure 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. As in his previous work, Kushner's ability to provoke, entertain, reinvent and reconstitute language is nothing short of astonishing; with Homebody/Kabul, Kushner reaffirms his status as one of the most important and dynamic contemporary dramatists in the world

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For Arthur Miller's centennial year, The Library of America and editor Tony Kushner present the final volume in the definitive collected edition of the essential American dramatist. Here are eleven masterful, haunting, funny, and provocative later plays, from the double-bill Danger: Memory (1987) to Finishing the Picture (2004), Miller’s final stage work, based loosely on events around the filming of The Misfits, in 1960, with Marilyn Monroe. In between, Miller revisits the perennially rich themes that define his work—the vagaries of fate and chance, the press of public events on private lives—with such plays as The Ride Down Mt. Morgan, The Last Yankee, Broken Glass, Mr. Peters’ Connections, and Resurrection Blues. Also presented in the volume are the early play The Golden Years, about the conquest of Mexico, which Miller revised for its first production in 1987; several shorter one-act plays and never-before-published early works and radio plays; and a selection of Miller’s incisive prose reflections on his art, among them “On Screenwriting and Language” and “About Theatre Language""--amazon.com

An examination of Bertolt Brecht's "Mother Courage and her children", and the political philosophies the play represents. Preparing for The Public Theater's 2006 production of Brecht's anti-war play, Meryl Streep allows a camera crew to document her rehearsal process and interest in the work. Moreover, the life and times of Brecht himself are followed, most notably the playwrites' escape from Nazi Germany, subsequent exile, testimony to the House Un-American Activities Committee, and his eventual return to the country where the play was first staged. Along with backstage scenes and discussion by theatre notables such as Tony Kushner and Streep's costar Kevin Kline, the documentary seeks to depict the history and inspirations underlying the play's themes
Gross indecency : the three trials of Oscar Wilde by Moisés Kaufman( Book )

2 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In April 1895 Oscar Wilde brought a libel suit against the Marquess of Queensberry, the father of his youthful lover, who had publicly maligned him as a sodomite. In doing so, England's reigning man of letters set in motion a series of events that would culminate in his ruin and imprisonment. For within a year the bewildered Wilde himself was on trial for acts of 'gross indecency' and -- implicitly -- for a vision of art that outraged Victorian propriety. In this work of the theater -- a smash hit Off Broadway -- Moises Kaufman turns the trials of Oscar Wilde into a riveting human and intellectual drama. Expertly interweaving courtroom testimony with excerpts from Wilde's writings and the words of his contemporaries, Gross Indecency unveils its subject in all his genius and human frailty, his age in all its complacency and repression."--Cover

The illusion by Tony Kushner( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freely adapted by playwright Tony Kushner, The Illusion triumphs as a thoroughly modern rendering of Pierre Corneille's neoclassical French comedy, L'Illusion Comique. Already a favorite of theatres throughout the country, this adaptation offers readers the exquisite wordplay, beguiling comedy and fierce intelligence found in all of Kushner's work. The Illusion follows a contrite father, Pridamant, seeking news of his prodigal son from the sorcerer Alcandre. The magician conjures three episodes from the young man's life. Inexplicably, each scene finds the boy in a slightly different world: names change, allegiances shift and fairy-tale simplicity evolves into elegant tragedy. Pridamant watches, enthralled by the boy's struggles, but only as the strange tale reaches its conclusion does the father confront the ultimate - and unexpected - truth about his son
