Get inside the May 2017 issue of Gay Times – featuring a world exclusive interview with Andrew Garfield and Russell Tovey.
Written by Tony Kushner, Angels in America is a complex examination of AIDS and homosexuality in America in the 1980s. 25 years since the National Theatre first staged the play, we’ve its two newest stars on the cover of Gay Times in a world exclusive shoot and interview.
Explaining to us why he feels passionately that young people see this play, Andrew Garfield told us:
“[Gay men in the 80s] fought a political system that wasn’t supporting them nor saving their lives in order for a new generation of gay men to live and be free.”

While his co-star Russell Tovey thinks we should also try and understand the impact of what we lost as a community:
“Just think of how many people wouldn’t have died, and how many plays [would have been] written or songs made. A huge wedge of creative people were just wiped out.”
Join us on set with Andrew Garfield and Russell Tovey with this exclusive footage from their cover shoot as the pair lead our May issue…
