Rehearsal images have been released of the National Theatre’s upcoming production of Angels in America.

Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama stars Andrew Garfield, Nathan Lane, Denise Gough, Russell Tovey and James McArdle.

Directed by Olivier and Tony award-winning director Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse), this landmark, two-part play is a complex, often metaphorical, and at times symbolic examination of AIDS and homosexuality in America in the 1980s.

Part One: Millennium Approaches was first performed at the National Theatre in 1992 and was followed by Part Two: Perestroika the next year.

The highly anticipated production sold-out within hours of going on sale, however tickets may still be purchased via the Angels Ballot, and it will also be broadcast to cinemas via NT Live from 20 July 2017.

Angels in America will run from 11 April 2017 until 19 August 2017 at the National Theatre.
