Angels in America - Part One : Millennium Approaches

By Tony Kushner
Directed by David Shirley

Angels in America explores politics, sex and religion through the intricately connected relationship of several lives. Whilst Louis is struggling to come to terms with his partner contracting AIDS, Mormon lawyer Joe finds himself trapped in a loveless marriage and wrestles with his latent homosexuality.

Wheeler dealing power broker Roy Cohen meanwhile toys with the lives around him whilst simultaneously denying his own human frailty.

Reflecting the social complexities and fast paced speed of modern life, the play explores the lives of these and other characters as they seek solutions to the modern dilemma.
