Perostoika follows on chronologically and plot-wise from Millennium Approaches. The play continues to focus on the story of Prior Walter, a gay man living with AIDS who has recently been left by his partner, Louis, after he could not cope with the physical and personal impact of the disease. The play opens as Prior is visited by the Angel who has come to make him the prophet for the Great Work designed by the angels above to save the human race. Interlinked with Prior are his ex-partner Louis, who has started a confused relationship with married Mormon lawyer Joe, and Harper, who is married to Joe and possesses the other-worldly vision (or “Threshold of Revelation”) that Prior also has. Aside from Prior’s journey, the play also contends with the death of Roy Cohn, a real-life attorney and key power broker during the McCarthy era. Garfield as Prior Walter and Nathan Lane as Roy Cohn.
