Amazon.com description: Product Description:

"Offers the chance to banquet on rich and delectable passions and ideas, washed down with lashings of wit. . . . Its big argumentative poetry screams out that history matters."—The Nation

"A brainy, brawny, thematically expansive work, stuffed with challenging sociopolitical ideas and dialectical fireworks. . . . Kushner's social engagement and his intellectualism are balanced, as always, by his penetrating humanism."—Hollywood Reporter

Gus Marcantonio, a retired longshoreman, summons his adult children home to the family's Brooklyn brownstone to discuss his recent decision to commit suicide. With his trademark mix of soaring intellect, searing emotion, and biting wit, legendary playwright Tony Kushner unfurls an epic tale of revolution, radicalism, family, love, sex, politics, real estate, unions and debts both unpaid and unpayable. With sweeping themes as hefty as its title, "IHo" (as it has been nicknamed) explores the dense and vexing issues that stem from the betrayal of a failed ideology and the challenges of family connectedness. This cerebral mammoth of a play asks what is left when the long-held belief systems that construct and inform one's identity prove to be empty.

An extraordinary play from the renowned author of Angels in America.

Tony Kushner is the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize, two Tony Awards, three Obie Awards, two Evening Standard Awards, an Olivier Award, an Emmy Award, two Oscar nominations, and the Steinberg Distinguished Playwright Award, among other honors. In 2012, he was awarded a National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama.
