More Life: Angels in America across the decades. (McFarland, 2019)
Drawing on my PhD research, alongside new research on the most recent revival of Tony Kushner’s Angels in America. This book reflects on the National Theatre’s role in developing the work from the World Premiere production, to this first return to Broadway. Taking in the place of the work in the theatrical canon and it’s importance in documenting the AIDS crisis, this is the first work to consider the National Theatre productions and the Broadway revival.
