Unexplainable things are occurring in Manningham's home. Set in 19th-century London, Patrick Hamilton's Angel Street is a murder thriller investigating mysterious events, such as injuries, missing items, and footsteps heard from a locked, unoccupied top floor. Mr. Manningham hears the footsteps and believes that she may be going insane. But the arrival of Detective Rough leads to further questioning and an opening of secrets, which may reveal that it is not Mr. Manningham’s sanity that is of concern but if the man she is married to is dangerous.
Creating the Manningham Drawing Room was all in the details. We could get out hands-on by working closely with the Properties team to source all the Victorian-era props and set dressing. I modified the curved staircase in the script to have the scene shop with the 6-day build schedule. We created the wallpaper roller using a 1930’s roller that was gifted to the theatre the last summer.
