Angels In America

Set in New York City in 1985, the play deals with the essential themes of Justice and Judgment, Sexuality and Sexual Identity, Isolation and Betrayal, Spirituality, Visions of Reality and Politics, and explores their bearing on the human existence in the Reagan Era in the United States of America. The lives of Louis Ironson, a neurotic gay Jew and his long-term partner Prior Walter, a white Anglo-Saxon protestant diagnosed with AIDS, intersect with the ones of Joe Pitt, a closeted homosexual Mormon and Republican law clerk, and his Valium-addicted, agoraphobic and hallucinating wife, Harper. In turn, they are in one way or another affected by the vicissitudes and the will of Roy Cohn, aMcCarthyst lawyer and self-loathing, power-hungry, HIV-positive hypocrite; Joe’s conservative Mormon and deeply unsympathetic mother Hannah; Belize, former drag-queen and Prior’s best friend; and, of course, The Angel, commanding Prior to become a prophet. A number of smaller characters, played by the members of the main cast with the intention of encouraging the audience to consider the elasticity of gender and sexual identities, all play a fundamental role in this exploration of the human condition. Angels in America is essentially a recollection of lost souls, whose stories are brought together by reality to create bonds of love, hate, loss and loneliness, and - in the end – to overcome abandonment and discover forgiveness.
