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.

Originally premiered in Britain at the National Theatre, London, where it won the Evening Standard Best Play Award, Tony Kushner's Angels in America went on to win two Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

This volume contains both Part One: Millennium Approaches and Part Two: Perestroika.

Extra content: 'I’ve felt that Millennium Approaches is finished, as good as I can make it. But the second part, Perestroika, still has possibilities...' Tony Kushner on Angels in America in an interview in The Observer, 14 May 2017. Read more...

A newer edition of Angels in America is also available, with extensive bonus material.

Press Quotes

'The finest drama of our time, speaking to us of an entire era of life and death as no other play within memory. In its sweep and imagination, it defines the collapse of a moral universe during the Reagan years in an unforgettable way, transcending its specific time in the richness of its portrait of an America Lost, perhaps to be regained... It's a pretty funny play, too. How we still need it! It ranks as nothing less than one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century'
