The year is 1985: Ronald Reagan has just been reelected to a second term,
and the deadly AIDS epidemic is at its height in New York City. Tony Kushner’s
Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®–winning epic historical drama captures the
lives of the HIV-positive Prior; Louis, his lover; Joe, a closeted, gay Mormon; his
Valium-addicted wife Harper; Roy Cohn, a notorious lawyer from the McCarthy
hearings who is dying of AIDS; Belize, his African
American nurse; Hannah, Joe’s mother from Utah; and the
Angel, a terrifyingly beautiful herald of the apocalypse. As these
characters discover, confront, and seduce each other during a time
of death, hypocrisy, and tumultuous change, Kushner summons
a restless pastiche of the historical and the supernatural, the
theological and the political.
