Angels in America
By Tony Kushner
History is about to crack wide open. Millennium approaches.
University of Oxford students present a rare revival of the daring, modern classic Angels in America.
A wide spectrum of individuals in late 1980s America collide in the midst of the AIDS pandemic.
Prior Walter’s diagnosis triggers the disintegration of his relationship, driving his lover into the path of staunch Mormon Joe Pitt. Joe’s wife retreats into a hallucinatory dream world, New York lawyer Roy Cohn battles his own inner demons, and all in the shadow of a looming, angelic presence. As time trickles away, justice and truth are undermined and the limits of human experience are tested.
Tony Kushner’s lyrical masterwork Angels in America: Millennium Approaches was awarded both the Pulitzer and Tony Awards upon premiere, and was later developed into a major HBO drama, which starred Al Pacino and Meryl Streep.
