Part 1: Millennium Approaches
New York City. 1986.
Two couples wrestle relationships, religion and figuring out their place in the world. Valium, politics and sex help to escape reality and sometimes make it clearer.
And then there’s the invincible and egotistical, Roy. A corrupt lawyer whose ability to spin words makes the truth sometimes seem highly unlikely.
Set in a world of fast paced change, medical epidemic, and the excitement of city living, Angels In America is a phenomenal piece of theatre having won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1993.
This new production by Chalkdust Theatre promises to really explore the themes of Community, Identity and Status versus Change, as it is created with secondary students studying the HSC Drama topic, Tragedy in mind.
