Homebody/Kabul covers 5,000 years of history, explores the relationship of the West to the East -- both historically and in the present -- collides the personal with the political, and doesnt let us off the hook, he explains. Despite its essential seriousness and the fact that the evening begins with an almost hour-long monologue, the play is far from tedious, he says. Its lively and episodic, one of those plays that moves at a tempo that belies its length.
It has taken ten years for Curious to get from Angels to Homebody, but given the winds of revolution blowing in the Middle East, the timing is exactly right. The show opens at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Curious Theatre Company, 1080 Acoma Street, and runs Thursdays through Sundays through April 16; tickets are $42.

Sundays, 2 p.m.; Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: March 20. Continues through April 16, 2011
