Russell Tovey’s Angels In America is now streaming on National Theatre At Home.
The actor starred in Tony Kushner’s multi-award-winning two-part play in 2017, alongside Andrew Garfield, Denise Gough and Nathan Lane – and both are available to watch online just in time for LGBT history month.
The production is set in 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,’ teases the synopsis for part one.
Meanwhile, part two picks up the threads of the six New Yorkers whose relationships are in tatters and fates are rapidly intertwining.
‘Prior, Joe, Belize, Louis, Harper and Roy continue their journeys through love, loss and loneliness to overcome abandonment and ultimately discover forgiveness,’ the logline reads.
Sharing the joyous news with his followers on Instagram, Russell enthused: ‘The @nationaltheatre’s 2017 production of #ANGELSINAMERICA has just been added to their home streaming service – go to ntathome.com, subscribe or just rent a single play and enjoy – “THE GREAT WORK BEGINS!” #joepitt#priorwalter#ntathome.’
The news comes after Years and Years star Russell opened up on coming out as gay to his family, saying his father wanted him to have hormone treatment thinking it may ‘cure’ him of his homosexuality.
National Theatre At Home is a streaming service offering unforgettable British theatre.
The platform boasts of a whole host of plays, including Coriolanus, starring Tom Hiddleston, and Christopher Eccleston and Jodie Whittaker’s Antigone.
