Tony Kushner’s new play, The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures
This spring, Berkeley Rep presents Tony Kushner’s new play, The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures
In this play Kushner uses one argumentative family to explore some of the major questions of life. What is a meaningful life? What if you are disappointed at the end of your life? How do we deal with the uncontrollable and constant changes? Is suicide a valid choice?
None of these issues are new. Jewish wisdom, in particular Kohelet, or Ecclesiastes, has addressed these questions, often leaving the reader still unsure of whether to be comforted by simple pleasures or tormented by the meaninglessness of human existence. Put on your philosopher’s cap and join Rabbi Chester to discuss little things, like the meaning of life.
