In 17th century France, a father seeks a sorcerer to find his long-lost son and is shown enticing visions from his son's swashbuckling, passionate, and adventurous life. Ohlone College's award-winning Theatre and Dance Department presents The Illusion, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner. Freely adapted from Pierre Cornielle's L'Illusion Comique for contemporary audiences, Kushner uses humor, romance, and suspense to delve into the mysteries of life and love. This play is especially appreciated by theatre-lovers and offers a surprising and satisfying twist at the end.
