NT Live: Angels in America Part 2, Perestroika

Thursday 27 July 2017

Quarry Theatre, 26 St Peters Street, Bedford MK40 2NN


Broadcast live from the National Theatre

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.

Andrew Garfield (Silence, Hacksaw Ridge) plays Prior Walter along with a cast including Denise Gough (People, Places and Things), Nathan Lane (The Producers), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Russell Tovey (The Pass).

This new staging of Tony Kushner’s multi-award winning two-part play is directed by Olivier and Tony award winning director Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse). Part One: Millennium Approaches was first performed at the National Theatre in 1992 and was followed by Part Two: Perestroika the following year.

“An exhilarating long day’s journey into flight. Andrew Garfield is spectacular” ★★★★★ SUNDAY TIMES

“A blistering production. The entire cast are superb” ★★★★★ WHAT’S ON STAGE

Part One:  Millennium Approaches will be broadcast live on 20 July 2017.
