Tiny Kushner: An Evening of Short Plays
May 16 - June 13, 2009 (Opening May 20)
Dowling Studio

As part of the celebration of the work of Tony Kushner, the Guthrie presents an evening of Kushner's short plays in the Dowling Studio, which will include Flip Flop Fly!, Terminating or Sonnet LXXV or "Lass Meine Schmerzen Nicht Verloren Sein" or Ambivalence (which premiered at the Guthrie Lab as part of The Acting Company's 1998 national tour of Love's Fire), East Coast Ode to Howard Jarvis, Dr. Arnold A. Hutschnecker in Paradise, and Only We Who Guard the Mystery Shall Be Unhappy.

Kushner, who has also received an Emmy and two Tony Awards, won a Pulitzer Prize in 1993 for "Millennium Approaches," the first half of his two-part Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes. His other plays include A Bright Room Called Day and Homebody/Kabul. He also wrote the book and lyrics for the musical Caroline, or Change and the screenplay for Steven Spielberg's Munich.

This production contains strong language.

Programming in the Dowling Studio is sponsored by Digital River and TRAVELERS.
