About the Book:

Angels in America
was one of Royal National Theatre of Britain's top 100 plays of the 20th century.

Winner of the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Drama as well as Drama Desk and Tony awards for Best Play.

The first half of Tony Kushner's emotional, poetic, political epic Angels in America in two parts: Millennium Approaches and Perestroika.

In Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, set in 1980s New York City, a gay man is abandoned by his lover when he contracts the AIDS virus, and a closeted Mormon lawyer's marriage to his pill-popping wife stalls. Other characters include the infamous McCarthy-ite lawyer Roy Cohn, Ethel Rosenberg, a former drag queen who works as a nurse, and an angel.

Spanning the Reagan-Bush years, this groundbreaking two-part epic weaves the lives of fictional and historical characters into a feverish web of social, political and sexual revelations.

What people say:

"Angels in America is 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." — New York Observer

"Angels in America is the broadest, deepest, most searching American play of our time." — Newsweek

"A vast, miraculous play… provocative, witty and deeply upsetting… a searching and radical rethinking of American political drama.” — The New York Times

"Something rare, dangerous and harrowing… a roman candle hurled into a drawing room…." — London Evening Standard

"Playful and profound, extravagantly theatrical and deeply spiritual, witty, and compassionate, furious and incredibly smart… It's impossible to imagine anyone captivated by the beginning not wanting-needing-to go back for the end." — Newsday

"An enormously impressive work of the imagination and intellect, a towering example of what theatre stretched to its full potential can achieve." — Philadelphia Inquirer
