It’s not just the title (The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures) that’s daunting in Tony Kushner’s exhaustive three-and-a-half-hour epic, which tackles everything from socialist history, belief systems and family dysfunction to maternity strap-ons and meta jokes about cell phones at the theatre. It’s such a barrage of polyphonic arguments and relentlessly destructive behaviour that one begins to develop a sneaking sympathy with the patriarch’s desire for “self-delivery” AKA suicide. But, under Michael Boyd’s sure hand, a strong cast delivers the meat of this hefty piece – for those who can stick with it.
