And we all desire that Change will come." (Angels in America, II, 1, i) Dino Dimitriadis (Metamorphoses, Doubt) directs “one of the great plays of the 20th century” (Vanity Fair). Proudly presented in association with Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras.

Set in a turbulent New York City in the mid-1980s, the drama follows the interconnected lives of various New Yorkers affected by issues of the day including the conservative Reagan administration, AIDS, religious bigotry, angst about their sexuality – and miraculous spiritual visitations.

This fierce and astounding two-part drama is an epic exploration of politics, gay identity, and mythology, and a personal story of love and loyalty.
