The show runs Thursdays-Saturdays, May 13, 14, 15 and 20, 21, 22 at 7:30 p.m. with Saturday matinees at 2:30 p.m.

“Angel Street” is a Broadway hit that was first produced in London under the title “Gaslight.” It has been filmed twice.

The play tells the story of the Manninghams who live on Angel Street in the 19th century.

Mr. Manningham, a cruel, manipulative husband, is slowly torturing his gentle, devoted wife Bella into insanity to suit his own needs.  Will he succeed or will Inspector Rough of Scotland Yard stop him and in the process prove Mr. Manningham to be guilty of other crimes?

The secret of the dimming gaslight and the mystery of the hidden rubies will captivate all in this thrilling evening of suspense, Attic Productions says.
