Angels in America, Part Two: Perestroika Act 5, Scene 9 Summary

  • (This scene is optional. It isn't found in all productions of the play.)
  • Roy is in some version of the afterlife.
  • He's waist deep in ash and talking to a giant flaming Aleph (God).
  • Apparently, God is being sued for abandonment.
  • (Looks like the angels took Prior's advice.)
  • Roy assures God that if he's His lawyer, God has nothing to worry about.
