Angels in America is the story of WASP lawyer Prior Walter and those surrounding his life. Prior has just been diagnosed with AIDS, and his life crumbles over the course of the play while various subplots handle themes as diverse as McCarthyism, the Rosenberg trials, and religious prophecy. The play is a seminal work of the state of gay culture and closeted culture in middle-class America, as well as a unique look at San Franciscos's history.
