Angel Street - A Thriller
A Broadway hit first produced on the West End under the title Gaslight and filmed twice,
Angel Street tells the story of the Manninghams who live on Angel Street in 19th Century
London. As the curtain rises, all appears the essence of Victorian tranquility. It is soon
apparent however, that Mr. Manningham, a suavely handsome man, is slowly driving his
gentle, devoted wife Bella, to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness which masks
more sinsister motives. While he is out, Mrs. Manningham has an unexpected caller:
amiable, paternal Inspector Rough from Scotland Yard. Rough is convinced that
Manningham is a homicidal maniac wanted for a murder committed fifteen years earlier in
this very house. Gradually the inspector restores Bella's confidence in herself and as the
evidence against Manningham unfolds, the author has built and sustained some of the most
brilliant, suspenseful sequences in modern theatre.
