ANGEL STREET – Victorian Thriller by Patrick Hamilton
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 the essence of Victorian tranquillity.

As a double surprise, the trio, armed with a duplicate key to Holly’s condo – await her arrival. But as they set up, the surprises pile up when the condo reveals its own gift of dirty secrets.
