Early 1980s New York. A new virus is infecting gay men across the city. As the rising death toll is ignored by government and the medical establishment, fear and confusion turns to rage and division.

Marking 35 years since its explosive UK premiere, Dominic Cooke (Follies) directs Larry Kramer’s groundbreaking play about the American AIDS crisis.
