Texas Tech is opening a play this weekend called "The Illusion." It's about a father looking for his lost son and asking help from a sorcerer.
    
This is a very theatrical production with multiple realities, magic and some surprises. It's adapted from Pierre Corneille's 17th century comedy, "L'illusion Comique." The adapter is Pulitzer Prize-winning and Tony-winning playwright Tony Kushner, who just visited the Texas Tech campus a few weeks ago.
    
Director Jonathan Marks says they wanted to honor him with this production.

"We wanted to commemorate it - wanted to mark it," he said. "We'd done Kushner plays before - "Angels in America" part one and part two. He's one of the leading playwrights in the world today so the opportunity too make much of him felt appropriate."
