This Friday, the UBC Players’ Club is reading the first part of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes by Tony Kushner. Set during the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, Angels in America follows the lives of a gay couple in a New York, a closeted Mormon clerk and his wife, and a powerful Republican lawyer as their relationships unravel and reform in the face of a looming apocalypse of Biblical proportions.
The reading will be from 3-6pm on the 16th in Irving K. Barber 461, which is in the Nass Reading Room on the fourth floor. Snacks will be provided. The play reading will be followed by the Annual General Meeting of the Players’ Club at Wreck Beach, so anyone at the reading can come down afterward if they want and end the day with bonfires and campfire songs.
