Production Information: 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). This new staging of Tony Kushner’s multi-award winning two-part play is directed by Olivier and Tony award winning director Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse).

"Few shows are more life-enriching than this."
- Metro
"Andrew Garfield and the company soar in this seismic revival."
- Matt Wolf, Arts Desk
"An exhilarating long day’s journey into flight. Andrew Garfield is spectacular."
- Ben Brantley, The New York Times
"Beautifully staged. Astonishing performances. Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane excel."
- Michael Billington, The Guardian
"A tremendous production. The performances soar. A wonderful performance from Nathan Stewart-Jarrett. "
- Sarah Hemming, Financial Times
"Its sheer imaginative reach can be exhilarating and it’s studded with devilish humour. Instead of appearing dated, it seems pointedly topical in its scrutiny of intolerance, immigration, religious values and national ideals. A true theatrical epic. Nathan Lane is explosive."
- Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard
"Garfield is superb [...] It is an extraordinary, humane performance at the centre of this great epic play. The National deserves enormous credit for bringing it back to the stage with such conviction and power. A blistering production. "
- Sarah Crompton, What's On Stage
"Andrew Garfield gives one of the performances of the year in Tony Kushner’s hallucinatory epic. Moreover it's not just about politics, but the audacity of its form. Its doomy, sardonic surrealism remains quite unlike almost anything else: it’s as much a trip as a drama. "
- Time Out
"Tony Kushner’s intellectually dazzling, quirky, often downright bizarre Nineties two-part epic has, embedded at its mid-way point – at the climax to “Millennium Approaches” – the most outlandish coup de théâtre of recent times. A start-to-finish sensation. The performances and the plays absolutely fly. "
- Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph
"Kushner's “Gay Fantasia on National Themes” raised and raises consciousness and emerges here as both a sharp, moving account of how the Aids crisis emphasised the “limits of toleration” and timely reminder – given the new administration – that civil rights can never be taken for granted."
- Paul Taylor, The Independent
