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.
Public booking for Angels in America will open at 8.30am on Friday 20 January 2017.
Angels in America will be broadcast by NT Live from the National to cinemas around the UK and internationally. Dates and venues to be announced.
