The Illusion

by Tony Kushner

The Second Fall 2009 Dramat Experimental Production

The Illusion is a witty play about magic, love, and family. Pridamant, an elderly father, seeks a magician's powers in wishing to see what has become of his long-lost son. The Illusions that follow are poetic spectacles that not only question the importance of reality, but leave one smiling at it.
