From Broadway

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.
ANGEL STREET first appeared at the John Golden Theatre in New York.

CASTING ATTRIBUTES

Room for Extras

MR. MANNINGHAM - tall and good-looking, about 45. He is heavily moustached and bearded and perhaps a little too well dressed. His manner is suave and authoritative, with a touch of mystery and bitterness.
MRS. MANNINGHAM - about 34. She has been good-looking, almost a beauty - but now she has a haggard, wan, frightened air, with rings under her eyes, which tell of sleepless nights and worse.
ELIZABETH - a stout, amiable, subservient woman of 50.
NANCY - a self-conscious, pretty, cheeky girl of 19.
ROUGH - middle-aged - greying, short, wiry, active, brusque, friendly, overbearing. He has a low, warm chuckle and completely dominates the scene from the beginning.

A splendid example of why the classics are classic. Riveting, tension-filled, twists, turns - all the things that make for a great thriller.

I played Mr. Manningham in college, I lost my old script so I wanted to re-live some of those great scenes.  I love this play, thanks to you I can keep on loving it.
