Kushner stands out with an ability to make audiences relate to the most disenfranchised members of our community. Angels is the story of a gay man torn between his marriage to his wife, his affair with a man who has AIDS and his struggle to make sense of it all in an unforgiving and judgmental world. Kushners latest work, a musical, Caroline, or Change, is about a black maid accused of stealing from her white employer to feed her family. Hear him discuss his inspiration for these and all his other award-winning works in a lecture today followed by a Q&A with Alley Theatre Artistic Director Gregory Boyd. 7:30 p.m. Alley Theatre, 615 Texas.
