HOUSTON - Company OnStage presents Angel Street, by Patrick Hamilton, and directed by Rebecca Bernstein.

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, the author has built and sustained some of the most brilliant, suspenseful sequences in modern theatre.

“There is a particular reason for welcoming with open arms the excellent new melodrama […] It really can keep you anchored to your seat bolt-upright—a work that is everything one could hope for.” - New York Herald Tribune

After being displaced from its home of 33 years at the now defunct Westbury Square shopping center, Company OnStage has moved to its new performance home on the grounds of Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church.
