Join us in the best seats in the house to see the European premiere of The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures, the latest play by Tony Kushner (author of the play Angels in America and the screenplay for Lincoln), and support DAUK's get-out-the-vote activities in this critical election year.
You're also invited to join us for a pre-show reception starting at 6:00 p.m. before the show starts at 7:00 p.m.
Proceeds from this event will help support our central London campaign office (the only campaign office located outside the continental U.S.) to ensure that we get Americans in the UK voting for Hillary and Democratic candidates up and down the ballot all over the U.S.!
ABOUT THE PLAY
THE INTELLIGENT HOMOSEXUAL'S GUIDE TO CAPITALISM AND SOCIALISM
WITH A KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES
New York, 2007. Gus Marcantonio, retired longshoreman, former trade union organiser, renaissance man, feels that the world has turned its back on everything he has fought for in life. With his sister, he summons his three grown children home, trailing the appendages of their chaotic lives, to their Brooklyn brownstone for the most unusual family reunion yet…
Shot through with characteristic wit and searing passion, Tony Kushner’s latest play is at once the story of a family grappling to find meaning in a landscape they no longer recognise and an epic exploration of humanity’s compulsive search for Utopias, both personal and political.
Pulitzer Prize winner Kushner makes a highly anticipated return to Hampstead where his Slavs! debuted in 1994. His other plays include the classic Angels in America and screenplays include the Oscar-nominated Lincoln and Munich.
Olivier Award winner Michael Boyd’s recent directing credits include Orfeo (Royal Opera House/Roundhouse) and Marlowe’s Tamburlaine (Broadway). Boyd was the Artistic Director of The RSC from 2002 until 2012.
Tamsin Greig returns to Hampstead following William Boyd's sell out hit Longing in 2013. Her other theatre credits include Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (West End) and Jumpy (Royal Court/West End). Her television credits include Friday Night Dinner, Episodes and Green Wing and her film credits include Tamara Drew and The Second Exotic Marigold Hotel.
David Calder's recent theatre credits include The Audience (Apollo) and The Nether (Duke of York’s). Film credits include The Lady in the Van and The World is Not Enough.
Sara Kestelman's theatre credits include Girls (UK Tour) and Cabaret (Donmar). Film credits include Lady Jane.
