ZZ NT LIVE: Angels in America - Part 1

A gay fantasia on national themes

Part 1  – Millennium Approaches

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, Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes, 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 Two: Perestroika will be broadcast live from the National Theatre on 27 July.

Samantha Dawson from Body Positive Dorset will introduce this screening and give a short talk about how they support and empower people in Dorset living with and affected by HIV.
