Please read Tony Kushner’s Angels in America which is in two parts. This is available through the Brooklyn Colleges Proquest Ebook Central. Read both.
You may also be interested/prefer to watch a production. (not a requirement)
I highly recommend the National Theatre’s most recent one starring Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane (among others.) It is unfortunately not available through the Brooklyn College library. It is available for a fee to rent as part of the National Theatre at Home initiative. Note that if you do this, it may be cheaper to do a one-month subscription rather than rent the two plays individually.
The play was also filmed as a mini-series for HBO with Meryl Streep.
A bit of context for the play. If you are unfamiliar with the extent of the AIDS crisis please check out:
I also ask that you read these two performance reviews of the play:
The first is from the first staging of the production in London. The second is a revival by the experimental director Ivo Van Hove.

What questions do you have about the play? Were there parts that were confusing? What do you think that the play is trying to say?
