Angels in America is the story of two couples living in New York at the end of the 20th Century.

Prior and Louis have to deal with the disastrous news of a HIV diagnoses which threatens their relationship and puts things in perspective during the height of the AIDS crisis. Louis strains to keep his wits as his lover gets sicker, while Prior hides his pain with dry humour.

Joe and Harper’s faith is tested as their marital problems come to a head. Joe struggles to remain faithful to his religion, and to his wife, as he wars with the fearful questioning of his own sexuality. Harper, unhappy and addicted to Valium, grows increasingly aware that all is not as it seems with her husband.

Both couples live in a world of corruption, politics, religion, fear of illness, and of being alone.

And it is a world that seems to be coming apart around them as Harper and Prior slip through the boundaries of their own dreams and hallucinations.

This will be ThereisBear’s third production and our second tour. Last summer we toured Patrick Galvin’s ‘The Last Burning’ to six locations nationwide, and in January we brought Edward Albee’s ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ to Druid Lane Theatre in Galway, both generating excellent reviews.

Angels in America has received critical acclaim and won numerous awards since its premiere in 1991, courting  controversy amongst conservatives as well as praise from all corners. We recognise this play’s importance, as well as its connections with our own recent past, and we want to bring it to Irish audiences with as high a standard as possible.

We are asking for you to help fund this summer’s tour. The money raised will go towards transport, advertising in papers as well as posters and flyers, venue hire, and other production costs such as set and technical equipment. Any donation, no matter the size, will be gratefully received and put to good use. Every euro makes a difference, and will help our small company take this production from being good, to great.

Thanks from all of us at ThereisBear! -we hope to see you this summer.
