Andrew Garfield is outstanding as Prior: brittle but stubborn and self-aware; fearful but mordantly funny throughout.

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).

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