The National Theatre present a revival of Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize-winning double bill Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes directed by Olivier and Tony award-winner Marianne Elliott.

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. Millennium Approaches, the first of the two plays which form Angels in America, received its British premiere directed by Declan Donnellan’s at the NT’s Cottesloe Theatre in 1992, and was joined by Perestroika in a double-bill the following year. 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the shows.

Tickets are now on sale.
