“Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches”, by Tony Kushner (from unypl)
Yay for reading Tony Kushner on the subway!
Ethel eats too many boiled eggs. Annie is scared of fat people. And Lesley finds herself falling in love with a toucan…
Welcome to the world of The Light Box, a new play by Natalia Savvides.
In a landscape of sirens and cruise ships, Ethel’s mother Lesley escapes her stifling marriage and runs away with a toucan she meets in the jungle, leaving behind her baby daughter Ethel. When the grown-up Ethel attacks co-worker Annie for no apparent reason, she is forced to negotiate life in an institution alongside the difficult terrain of first love, all the while trying to work out just how her mother could have abandoned her for a feeling.
