BWW Review: THE INTELLIGENT HOMOSEXUAL'S GUIDE..., Hampstead TheatreBWW Review: THE INTELLIGENT HOMOSEXUAL'S GUIDE..., Hampstead Theatre
by Marianka Swain - Oct 31, 2016

It's not just the title 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.
