About the Book



An extraordinary play from Kushner (Angel in America), winner of a Pulitzer Prize, two Tony Awards, three Obie Awards, an Emmy Award, two Oscar nominations, and a National Medal of Arts presented by President Barack Obama.



Book Synopsis



"iHo is a vast, rich work of public-intellectual engagement. . . The values built into this beautifully inquiring play operate outside of common dramatic economies. Kushner's carefully organized labor of love is a spur to the active mind."--Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

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 intel-lect, searing emotion, and biting wit, Kushner unfurls an epic tale of revolu-tion, radicalism, family, love, sex, politics, real estate, unions, and debts both unpaid and unpayable.





Review Quotes




"Thrillingly ambitious . . . I walked into New York's Public Theater . . . genuinely excited to find out what was on the author's mind and left with enough food for thought to last a theatrical winter." --Charles McNulty, Culture Monster, Los Angeles Times

"At a time when citizens feel trapped in the eternal present of the twenty-four-hour news cycle, iHo's big argumentative poetry screams out that history matters." --Margaret Spillane, Nation

"A humane, impassioned play . . . vast in length, argument and scope. It is attractively ambitious, grappling with deep socio-political change and loss of direction: a huge, generous and meaty state-of-the-nation work wrapped in a family drama." --Sarah Hemming, Financial Times
