Homebody by Tony Kushner
Holding only an outdated guidebook of Kabul, an eccentric and agoraphobic British housewife proclaims her unconsummated passion for the world. She grapples with the rich and turbulent history of Afghanistan, muses about living in the Middle East, confides to us her desire to divorce herself from the complacency of her safe life in London. Premiering shortly after 9/11, Tony Kushners prescience was praised, as was Homebodys warm invocation of hope in an increasingly chilling, negative world.

Debra Wise (The Homebody) co-founded URT in Oberlin with Wes Sanders. During URTs decades as a touring company (1979-2008), she helped create over 30 new works, and toured them nationally and internationally to venues ranging from Lincoln Center to public schools; titles included Sanctuary  The Spirit of Harriet Tubman, Home is Where, InTOXICating and The Christopher Columbus Follies. She led URT collaborations with Boston Symphony Orchestra (Firebird, Creation of the World, Tempest), Bostons Museum of Science (Aging Puzzle), New Center for Arts and Culture (Jewish Women and Their Salons), the Mary Baker Eddy Library, the MFA and the ICA (Art InterACTions), and the Cambridge Arts Council (theater in dialogue with public art). Since creating Central Square Theater with TheNora Theatre Company, Wise has focused on re-envisioning URTs mission to grow from within its first theater home. She co-founded Catalyst Collaborative@MIT (CSTs unique science theater partnership with MIT), and led partnerships with Mount Auburn Cemetery (Our Town) and the National Park Service (Roots of Liberty  The Haitian Revolution and the American Civil War, performed with over 50 performers and guest artists Danny Glover and Edwidge Danticat). URT has won two Elliott Norton awards under Wises leadership: The Convert (Outstanding Production) and Bedlams St. Joan (Best Visiting Production). She will be acting in two upcoming productions during CSTs 2016-17 season: Homebody (a monologue by Tony Kushner) and The Midvale High School Fiftieth Reunion (by Alan Brody). Other appearances on the CST stage include Copenhagen, Mr g, Brundibar, The Other Place, Distracted, The How and the Why, Einsteins Dreams, From Orchids to Octopi: An Evolutionary Love Story, Yesterday Happened: Remembering H.M., Breaking the Code, Arabian Nights and A Christmas Memory. Acting on other Boston stages has included Mistero Buffo (Poets Theatre); A Boston Marriage and Orsons Shadow (New Repertory Theatre), Brooklyn Boy (Speakeasy Stage Co.), and Chosen Child (Boston Playwrights); in NYC, The Haggadah (The Public, with Julie Taymor). Wise has been nominated for Outstanding Performance by both the Elliot Norton Awards (twice) and the IRNE (three times). Her work as a playwright includes States of Grace, inspired by the stories, poems and essays of Grace Paley; and Alices Adventures Underground, based on the works of Lewis Carroll. She collaborates each summer with Harvards Project Zero, training educators on using theater to help students think more deeply across the curriculum.
