Angels In America - Double pass giveaway

Written by

"To miss this achievement in contemporary theatre is to miss one of the most important plays of the 20th Century"

Critically acclaimed play Angels In America comes to Perth THIS Month for a limited time only. Beloved by fans and critics alike, this modern masterpiece has won every award worth winning in theatre, including the Tony Award for Best Play, twice, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Saturday 28th May - Sunday June 19
State Theatre Centre of WA

Set in 1985 New York City, this ground-breaking drama follows Prior Walter, a young gay man diagnosed with AIDS and abandoned by his lover. Desperate and alone, he is visited in a dream by an angel that brands him a prophet and tasks him with saving humanity from themselves.

As if this wasn’t a big enough burden, Walter must navigate a minefield of the fantastic and the mundane, including Mormons, a communist hating homophobic lawyer and a drug-addicted housewife, as well as his own feelings of abandonment and disenchantment.

The Bottom Line

Written by

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. Most sexually active people come into contact with it at some time in their lives. Gay men (and particularly HIV-positive gay men) are at a greater risk of developing some HPV-related cancers, compared to the general population.

For all the information you need to know about HPV visit the dedicated website

Our Mission

To minimise the impact and further transmission of HIV, other blood borne viruses and sexually transmissible infections. To reduce social, legal and policy barriers which prevent access to health information and effective support and prevention services.
