ABOUT THE PLAY

Before we were human. We were birds. And. We. Were. Magnificent! Inspired by Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, when last we flew is a moving and often humorous look at life in small town America from a contemporary teenage perspective. After stealing his local library’s only (and unread) copy of Angels in America, misfit teenager Paul locks himself in the bathroom and begins reading the landmark play. He soon finds that his life and the lives of those around him in his small Kansas suburb are about to take flight, and over the course of a seemingly ordinary day, extraordinary things start to happen…

when last we flew has received workshops at the Lincoln Center Director’s Lab, New York Theatre Workshop and the Sundance Theater Lab.
