The most anticipated new American play of the decade, this brilliant work is an emotional, poetic, political epic in two parts: Millennium Approaches and Perestroika. Spanning the years of the Reagan administration, it weaves the lives of fictional and historical characters into a feverish web of social, political, and sexual revelations.

I've only recently begun to regularly read plays outside the realm of Shakespeare, and this play has been distinguishably the best. Every character and line of dialogue serves a very specific purpose, and all of them succeed at said purpose. The intersections of politics, religion, identity, affliction, and society play out beautifully. I feel as though anyone would be able to derive something personally moving from this play.

Possibly the most important American play of the last 30 years.
