In the dead of night a father creeps into a dark cave in the hopes that the magician said to live there can reunite him with his lost son. The shadowy conjurer, it turns out, can show the father the life of his son as it has played out. What follows is a story of wild passion, betrayal, and the vagaries of love. Tony Kushner’s lively adaptation of Corneille’s comedy explores the power of things that seem to have no substance at all and yet can affect profound change in us.
