The Tin Roof Theatre Company presents ANGEL STREET, tonight, November 8, 9, 10 at 7:30, and November 11 at 2:00.
Angel Street was a Broadway hit first produced on the West End under the title Gaslight and filmed twice.
Angel Street is the story of the Manninghams who live on Angel Street in 19th Century London. As the curtain rises, all appears to be the essence of Victorian tranquility. It is soon apparent, however, that Mr. Manningham, a suave, 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.
The Tin Roof Theatre Company is a non-profit theatre collective whose primary goal is to produce high-quality, challenging theatrical productions focusing primarily on American classics that entertain, enrich, and educate the community.
