“Gaslight,” retitled “Angel Street” in the U.S., was the 1938 play that made writer, Patrick Hamilton, famous, the release stated. It tells the story of the Manninghams, who live on Angel Street in 19th century London. All appears to be the essence of Victorian tranquility, but it is soon apparent that Mr. Manningham, a suavely handsome man, is slowly driving his devoted wife, Bella, to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness that masks his more sinister motives.
The next event for The Matthews is the Lakota Music Composition Academy Concert at 2 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 10. Tickets are on sale now. For more information or to learn about upcoming events, visit MatthewsOpera.com.
