SynopsisMIDWEST PREMIERE In the late 90s, a bored, emotionally imprisoned but wildly intellectual English woman called the Homebody, flees to Afghanistan, a place that she romanticizes with the help of a tourist guidebook. Her mysterious disappearance prompts a search by her husband and daughter who arrive in the foreign land unprepared for the adventures and contradictions that await them. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner, author of Angels in America, has turned his penetrating gaze to the arena of global politics to create this suspenseful portrait of a dangerous collision between cultures.
