The Illusion

The opening production of the 50th year of the Cayman Drama Society extends its reach into France in the 1600’s. THE ILLUSION is a play about a father whose son ran away years ago because of the father’s attitude. Now aged, he wishes for reconciliation. Unable to find his son, he hires a magician who, he is told, can reconnect him with his son. Three illusions are presented by the magician, each with a twist, leaving the father confused. The play ends with a final twist and an unanswered question – who is the puppet, and who is the puppeteer? Tony Kushner (Angels in America) wrote THE ILLUSION based on “L’Illusion Comique” by Pierre Corneille, a 17th century French playwright. With a light, witty, and comedic touch we are taken through the illusions in this freely adapted version of "L'Illusion Comique" by Kushner. Lovers of the art of theatre will find a home as shades of comedy, drama, poetry, Shakespearean prose and mystery entangle themselves within the plot.
