"Are we doomed?
Will the past release us?
Can we change?

Angels in America Part II: Perestroika 
By Tony Kushner

April 27 – May 6
Previews April 24 & 26
Floyd and Delores Jones Playhouse Theatre, University of Washington

Part two of Tony Kushner’s epic tale of AIDS in 1980s America begins in a ruined place where the old orders are splintering and everything—and everyone—has come apart. Prior Walter is a prophet, and now the “great work” of rebuilding this devastated world can begin. We meet characters who, having faced annihilation, must now confront their own stubborn indestructability. Profoundly funny, magnificently theatrical, and startlingly timely, Perestroika is a story about locating hope in the midst of chaos. The New York Times called it “a true millennial work of art, uplifting, hugely comic and pantheistically religious in a very American style.”
