ThereisBear! Theatre is proud to present an exciting new summer of theatre projects. The Galway theatre company will be producing Tony Kushner’s classic Angels in America for a national tour in May and June including a stint in Athlone Little Theatre from June 6-8. They are also offering a Junior and Leaving Cert Shakespeare Workshop to schools in order to enable students to prepare for questions on the plays for this year’s State exams.
Angels in America is the story of two couples living in New York in the 1980s, set against the stark backdrop of the Cold War and the AIDS crisis. Louis and Prior find their relationship in tatters as a result of a HIV positive diagnosis, with Louis’s commitment in question as Prior’s condition worsens. Joe and Harper’s marriage suffers under the strain of Harper’s valium addiction and pressure from Joe’s work. We see Joe struggle with his own sexuality as Harper slips deeper into dependency. Tempers flare and their Mormon faith is tested to its limit.
Angels in America is a 20th century classic and carries important messages on love and loss, politics and religion, and marriage and separation. The show runs from June 6-8 in Athlone Little Theatre.
