Cover of PlayscriptAngels In America Part II

Tony Kushner

Prior journeys to heaven to reject the role of prophet, to reject the angel's state of equilibrium and to ask for more life. By the epilogue, set at Bethesda's fountain in Central Park, where no water flows in winter, he has been living with AIDS for five years. Prior and his friends tell us the story of the original fountain of Bethesda: when the Millennium comes, - "not the year two thousand, but with the capital M Millennium" - the waters that heal will flow again.
