Angels in America: Perestroika

Tony Kushner

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Angels in America: Perestroika is the second part of Tony Kushner's epic drama. It tracks the AIDS crisis in New York and leans even further into the magical realist elements which are gestured towards in the first part. An Angel visits a gay man living with HIV and tells him that he is a prophet, real life New York lawyer Roy Cohn is dying in his hospital bed, and Mormon Joe explores his sexuality. All the while, heaven is growing yet more angry with earth.

Please note the earlier start time of this show. The show will be four hours long with two intervals.

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.
