When you’re a kid, there are plenty of ways to win honors. It wasn’t too hard to score the Presidential Fitness Award in gym class, a red participation ribbon at the science fair, or a perfect-attendance certificate from your homeroom teacher. But as you get older, there are fewer and fewer trips to the winner’s circle. Playwright and screenwriter Tony Kushner—who wrote Spielberg’s Munich and HBO’s Angels in America series—isn’t your average adult, though. Over the course of his career, he has taken home a Pulitzer, an Emmy, an Obie, and three Tonys. He’ll take time out from dusting his trophy case to sit down for an interview with University of Maryland emeritus English professor Jackson Bryer.

TONY KUSHNER APPEARS AT 3:30 P.M. AT THE DEKELBOUM CONCERT HALL IN THE CLARICE SMITH PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, STADIUM DRIVE AND ROUTE 193, COLLEGE PARK. FREE. (301) 405-2787.
