About this show

Woolly Mammoth joins forces with Theater J for Tony Kushner's epic examination of East-West culture and politics, which couldn't be more timely. The exotic description of Afghanistan in an out-of-date travel guide entrances a curious and lonely British housewife. Abruptly, she sets off for the adventure of a lifetime -- but suddenly disappears. Her stunned husband and bewildered daughter travel to Taliban-ruled Kabul to claim her body and, instead, become swept up in mystery and obsessions of this strange and beautiful nation. With this epic adventure, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Tony Kushner plunges into the multiple layers, polite fictions and startling brutality of East-West politics and culture. Discounts available for students, seniors, and groups.
