Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches (Live)

20 July 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm


“People come and go so strangely here.”

Prior (from Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches)

Date: Thursday 20th July 2017
Time: 8PM

Venue: Cinema (St James Cavalier)

Set against the backdrop of a mid-1980s America that’s caught between the conservative Reagan era and the AIDS crisis, Andrew Garfield (Silence, Hacksaw Ridge) plays Prior Walter, a gay New York socialite who’s struggling through the thick of the illness. When Prior’s lover, Louis, suddenly abandons him to his own devices, our protagonist begins to experience a series of angelic visitations that seem suspended between reality and emotional crisis. Meanwhile, in the wide world outside Prior’s apartment, complex life dramas unfold among his extended social circles, played by a strong cast: Denise Gough (People, Places and Things), Nathan Lane (The Producers), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Russell Tovey (The Pass).

Based on a 1993 two-part play that won American playwright Tony Kushner multiple awards, this new staging of Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes, is directed by Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse), who has won the prestigious Laurence Olivier and Tony Awards.

Part Two: Perestroika, will also be broadcast live on Thursday 27th July 2017, time TBA.
