Angel Street, made into the classic movie Gaslight starring Ingrid Bergman, tells the dark story of a suavely handsome man and his wife. Mr. Manningham is slowly driving his wife to the brink of insanity by sowing in her the seeds of self-doubt and memory loss and playing on her fear of going mad like her mother, who died in an institution for the mentally ill. The play takes place in a house on Angel Street, London in 1880, a time when few women had the ability to free themselves of the Mr. Manninghams of the world. The playwright has built and sustained some of the most brilliant, suspenseful sequences in modern theatre. A surprisingly timely play.
Admission: $12 - $15
