Part One: Millennium Approaches

America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell.

Andrew Garfield (Silence, Hacksaw Ridge) plays Prior Walter along with a cast including Denise Gough (People, Places and Things), Nathan Lane (The Producers), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Russell Tovey (The Pass).

This new staging of Tony Kushner’s multi-award winning two-part play is directed by Olivier and Tony Award winning director Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse).

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

Part Two: Perestroika will also be screened, on Sunday, 1st October, 2017

★★★★ “Gaudy and unflinching, Tony Kushner’s 90s Aids drama still resonates in this bold, starry revival directed by Marianne Elliott” The Guardian

★★★★★  “Intellectually dazzling, quirky and often downright bizarre… the gifted Andrew Garfield, giving one of the performances of his career” The Telegraph

★★★★ Marianne Elliott’s mighty, cast-to-the-hilt production sweeps you through the well-nigh seven-and-a-half hour experience… Nathan Lane turns in a superbly searching account of the presiding demon of these plays” The Independent
