Angels in America, Part One

Angels in America, Part One by Tony Kushner

Part one of the play Angels in America, Millenium Approaches, focuses on the intertwining fates and overlapping storylines of two couples, Prior and Louis and Joe and Harper. Prior has just learned he has AIDs and is now hearing a mysterious voice while Joe, a Mormon, is struggling to accept that he's gay. The play examines identity and what it means to be gay, rich, or Mormon. It also offers a sharp critique of the early days of the AIDs crisis.
