This thrilling 1938 play by Patrick Hamilton, originally performed in London’s West End under the name Gaslight, was first brought to Broadway by acclaimed actor Vincent Price, who also starred in the production. Set in 19th-century London, Angel Street tells the story of Bella Manningham, a gentle, devoted wife who is slowly being driven to the brink of insanity by her husband. One night, Inspector Rough arrives while Mr. Manningham is out and tells Mrs. Manningham a shocking tale: he believes her husband is a homicidal maniac wanted for murder in the very house in which she now lives! As the evidence unfolds, Mrs. Manningham must determine who is telling the truth and how to escape a potentially-dangerous situation.
This play contains suspenseful scenes that may be intimidating to young children.
