Evening with Kushner set for April 4
Posted March 29, 2002; 03:57 p.m.
"An Evening With Playwright Tony Kushner" is scheduled for 8 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in McCosh 50.
The program will include an address by Kushner, who wrote the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning work "Angels in America," followed by a panel discussion.
The panelists will be: Emily Mann, artistic director of McCarter Theatre; Maria DiBattista, professor of English and comparative literature; Tamsen Wolff, instructor of English; and Michael Cadden, director of the Program in Theater and Dance.
Kushner's newest play, "Homebody/Kabul," opened in December at the New York Theatre Workshop. Completed before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the play tells the story of a middle-aged English woman -- a "homebody" -- who travels to Afghanistan in 1998 and mysteriously disappears.
Kushner's appearance is designated as a Farnum Lecture and is part of the University's Public Lectures Series .
