Homebody/Kabul by Tony Kushner ( Book )
24 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,258 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finds refuge and escape in the alternate world Afghanistan, which she exoticizes in her mind's eye with the help of an out-of-date tourist guide book.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

Millennium approaches by Tony Kushner ( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Angels in America: a Gay Fantasia on National Themes consists of two full-length plays, "Millennium Approaches" (Part 1) and "Perestroika," (Part 2). In Part 1, Kushner tells the story of a handful of people trying to make sense of the world. Prior Walter is a man living with AIDS whose partner, Louis, has left him and become involved with Joe, an ex-Mormon and political conservative whose wife, Harper, is slowly having a nervous breakdown. These stories are contrasted with that of Roy Cohn (in a fictional re-creation of the infamous American conservative ideologue who died of AIDS in 1986) and his attempts to remain in the closet while trying to find some sort of personal salvation in his beliefs. Winner of two Tony Awards and the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes: Part One: Millennium Approaches is one of the most outstanding plays of the American theater

Gross indecency : the three trials of Oscar Wilde by Moisés Kaufman ( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 150 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 - implicity - 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."--BOOK JACKET
