From one of the greatest American playwrights comes an epic tale of love, fear and politics. Set in London and the Afghan capital of Kabul at the end of the 90's, a lonely British housewife, the "Homebody", is enraptured with the love of an exotic and fallen city.  Oscillating between reality and fantasy, she follows her obsession and travels to Afghanistan alone, only to discover there is more to understanding other cultures than simply reading about them in a book.  In this dangerous collision between cultures, her daughter and husband endure a frustrating, yet revealing search for her.  An extraordinary story, HOMEBODY/KABUL, is both tragic and moving, reminding us that sometimes our most ardent searches yield the most surprising results.
