"This is a courageous revival, directed with immense rigour and underpinned by piercingly authentic performances. As the curiously named Prior Walter, Garfield catches all these notes while making him vulnerable and heartrendingly eloquent"
- Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard

"The core themes still pulse with urgency; the emotions sear afresh. You could get to New York in the time it takes to watch this. This triumphantly served, though, it’s near on eight hours thoroughly and memorably well spent"
- Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph

"Although it’s 24 years since Angels made its London debut, it still feels very timely in the age of Trump. When it comes to scale, scope and ambition, there is nothing quite like Angels in America and the National Theatre has risen to the occasion, pulling out all the stops in a revival that is epic in every sense of the word"
- Claire Webb, Radio Times

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 Two: Perestroika will also be broadcast live, on 27 July 2017.
