Synopsis
 
The two-part Angels in America by Tony Kushner is an epic drama set during the Reagan years in America. It was winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and is recognised as one of the major plays of the twentieth century.

Prior, visited by ghosts of his ancestors and abandoned by his lover after his diagnosis with AIDS, is wondering if he is still sane when the angels select him to be their prophet. Powerbroker Roy Cohn also has the virus - but he believes that only the powerless can have that particular illness, and so kicks back against his diagnosis.

Part one, The Millenium Approaches was first performed at the National Theatre in 1992. Part two, Perestroika, was first performed at the National Theatre in 1993.

The Lyric Hammersmith theatre produced Angels in America as a co-production with Headlong Theatre in 2007.

It was originally produced by the Eureka Theatre Company, USA in 1991.
