  • MR. MANNINGHAM (Male, age 45) tall and good-looking. He is perhaps a little too well dressed. His manner is suave and authoritative, with a touch of mystery and bitterness.
  • MRS. MANNINGHAM (Female, age 34). She has been good-looking, almost a beauty - but now she has a haggard, wan, frightened air, with rings under her eyes, which tell of sleepless nights and worse.
  • ELIZABETH (Female, age 50). a stout, amiable and subservient.
  • NANCY (Female, age 19) - a self-conscious, pretty, cheeky girl.
  • ROUGH (Male) - middle-aged - graying, short, wiry, active, brusque, friendly, overbearing. He has a low, warm chuckle and completely dominates the scene from the beginning.

About the play: Angel Street, a Victorian Thriller, tells the story of the Manninghams who live in 19th Century London. As the curtain rises, all appears 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 which 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 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.
