New York City
An unyielding father is filled with regret after giving his son no alternative but to flee the family home. Through the help of a magician, he is allowed to view three scenes from his son’s life, only to learn his remorse may have come too late. Or maybe not. Freely adapted from Pierre Corneille’s 17th century classic L’Illusion Comique by Tony Kushner and directed by Kathryn Walsh, The Illusion takes us from mayhem to magic and back again as it questions what it really means to love, and the obligations that may come with that emotion.
