Tony Kushner’s play Angels In America argues that love is, often times, incompatible and convoluted because love involves expectation and responsibility, from both oneself and one’s partner. Through the relationships between Joe and Harper and between Louis and Parker, the play suggests that often times these responsibilities and expectations do not align. Relationships, regardless of their outer-lying circumstances, are as multi-faceted and subjective as the individuals in the relationship. This presentation suggests that such complications are defining factors within Kushner’s relations hips and often outweigh the love that exists between two individuals.
