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finds refuge and escape in the alternate world Afghanistan, which she exoticizes in her mind's eye with the help of an out-of-date tourist guide book.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.
Tony Kushner has won the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Angels in America, which will be filmed for HBO by Mike Nichols from a teleplay by the author. His other plays include "A Bright Room Called Day and Slavs!, "as well as adaptations of "The Illusion, The Dybbuk, The Good Person of Szechuan "and "Stella." He is currently at work on two operas, a new play and a screenplay.

Review: Homebody/Kabulユーザー レビュー - Goodreads
I read this for my book group and it's play set in Afghanistan -- I wanted to enjoy it, but I didn't like it.
Review: Homebody/Kabulユーザー レビュー - Michael - Goodreads
Intense - I love Tony Kushner. I'm in the last act of this strange and bizarre journey through the minds of a broken family and the landscape of a twisted world. レビュー全文を読む
