National Theatre: Angels In America: Perestroika

‘A start-to-finish sensation. The performances and the plays absolutely fly’
Daily Telegraph

‘An exhilarating long day’s journey into flight. Andrew Garfield is spectacular’
Sunday Times

‘A true theatrical epic.’
Evening Standard

‘A blistering production. The entire cast are superb.’

America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell.

Andrew Garfield (Silence, Hacksaw Ridge) plays Prior Walter along with a cast including Denise Gough (People, Places and Things), Nathan Lane (The Producers), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Russell Tovey (The Pass).

This new staging of Tony Kushner’s multi-award winning two-part play is directed by Olivier and Tony award winning director Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse). 

Part One: Millennium Approaches was first performed at the National Theatre in 1992 and was followed by Part Two: Perestroika the following year.
