A radical exploration of the AIDS crisis in New York, queer relationships, religion, and what happens when Heaven isn’t happy with Earth, Angels in America follows recently diagnosed AIDS victim Prior Walter and the impact his diagnosis has on his romantic relationships. It also follows Harper and Joe, a Mormon couple, who wrangle with Joe’s identity as a secretly gay man. Over the course of its three acts, Angels in America tears down barriers between love and hate, life and death, and supernatural and natural.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today. Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
