Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner has returned to Berkeley Repertory Theatre for the West Coast premiere of his latest play, "The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures." Kushner, who first came to prominence with his two-part work "Angels in America," also wrote the screenplay for Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" among many other films. We'll talk to him about the new play, his career and his political activism.
