Angels In America will be shown at Weston Odeon.


A top-quality stage production will be beamed live to a Weston-super-Mare cinema next week, transporting theatre fans to London’s West End without leaving the town.

National Theatre Live: Angels In America Part One, Millennium Approaches will be shown at the Weston Odeon, in The Centre, on July 20 at 7pm.

Based on Tony Kushner’s 1993 Tony Award-winning script, Angels In America: A Gay Fantasia On National Themes, the show is a symbolic examination of homosexuality in the 1980s.

The play is set in New York in the mid-1980s, where the country finds itself in the middle of the AIDS crisis under the conservative Reagan administration – a group of young New Yorkers grapple with death, love and religion.

The show boasts a star-studded cast, including Andrew Garfield, Denise Gough, James McArdle and Russell Tovey.

Garfield is best known for his stint as a superhero in The Amazing Spiderman films, while Gough starred in People, Places And Things.

Star Wars fans will recognise McArdle from his appearance in The Force Awakens, while Tovey made his name on British television, featuring in programmes like Gavin And Stacey and Him And Her, as well as featuring in critically-acclaimed films like The History Boys.

Part two of this production, Perestroika, will be broadcast to the Odeon a week later on July 27 at 7pm.

Tickets for this show, priced £12.50-15, are available from the Odeon or online via www.odeon.co.uk
