BATAVIA – The Albright Theatre in Batavia will present “Angel Street” by Patrick Hamilton beginning Nov. 1.
Commonly known as “Gaslight,” "Angel Street" tells the story of the Manninghams. All appears the essence of Victorian tranquility in a London neighborhood, but Mr. Manningham’s sinister motives soon become apparent. He is slowly driving his wife, Bella, to the brink of insanity with insidious kindness. Following a lead on a murder committed 15 years ago in their home, the amiable Inspector Rough arrives, convinced that Mr. Manningham is the culprit. Inspector Rough gradually restores Bella’s self-confidence while the evidence against Mr. Manningham builds.
The production is supported by co-directors Jan Spink of Elgin and Mitch Jacobs of Elgin and stage manager/producer Jennifer Ring of Batavia.
“Angel Street” will run weekends Nov. 1 through Nov. 16. Performance times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays. The show is rated PG-13. The Albright Theatre Company is located at 100 N. Island Ave. (third floor of the Batavia Government Building), Batavia. Tickets cost $15 for Adults and $12 for students and seniors.
