Ashe County Little Theatre -Angel Street
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 to be 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 that masks more sinister motives. While he is out, Mrs. Manningham has an unexpected caller: amiable, paternal Inspector Rough from Scotland Yard. Rough is convinced that Mr. 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, together they trap Mr. Manningham in his own game.
Angel Street will be Friday and Saturday, October 12 and 13 at 7:30 and Sunday, October 14 at 2:00.
Tickets are $16 adults and $5 students and may be purchased at 336-846-2787 or at the Ashe Arts Center.
