Angels in America

Adelaide

From $20.00
An epic production in two parts, Angels in America is a complex, metaphorical and symbolic examination of sexuality in America in the 1980s by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning playwright Tony Kushner.

The West End production won the Olivier Award for Best Revival in 2018, and was screened as part of the National Theatre Live cinematic release. Later that year the production transferred to Broadway, where it won three Tonys: Best Revival; Best Actor in a Leading Role (Andrew Garfield); and Best Actor in a Featured Role (Nathan Lane).

In Part 1, Millennium Approaches, Prior Walter is HIV positive. His Jewish boyfriend leaves him for a straight Mormon and he gets a hospital visit from an angel who says it is up to him to save humanity. In Part 2, Perestroika, various forces have gathered in NYC: the ex-boyfriend and his Mormon lover, the pill-popping ex-wife, the conservative mother, a rabid Republican lawyer, a drag queen and a dead activist… and Prior has the future of the world in his hands.


Full of humour and hope, these diverse characters captivate audiences in its contemplation of humanity and our progress towards a new millennium. It is spectacular, yet intimate. With Kushner’s erudite writing and some of Adelaide theatre’s most talented performers, Angels in America is a theatre event not to be missed.
