A 1993 Pulitzer Prize winning drama, Angels in America is set in late 1985 and early 1986, as the first wave of the AIDS epidemic in America is escalating. The play weaves multiple stories together: that of a young gay man with AIDS and his frightened, unfaithful lover; a closeted Mormon lawyer and his valium-addicted wife; the infamous New York lawyer Roy Cohn; an African-American male nurse; a steel-winged, prophecy-bearing angel; the ghost of Ethel Rosenberg; and many others — all played by a company of actors in multiple roles. The lives of these disparate characters intersect, intertwine, collide, and are blown apart during a time of heartbreak, reaction and transformation. Ranging from earth to heaven; from the political to the intimate; to the visionary and supernatural, Angels in America is an epic exploration of love, justice, identity, theology, and of the difficulty, terror, and necessity of change
