MRS. MANNINGHAM – about 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 – a stout, amiable, subservient woman of 50.
NANCY – a self-conscious, pretty, cheeky girl of 19.
ROUGH – middle-aged – greying, short, wiry, active, brusque, friendly, overbearing. He has a low, warm chuckle and completely dominates the scene from the beginning.
Angel Street focuses on a seemingly normal couple, the Manninghams, who live in Victorian tranquility on Angel Street in 19th century London. Angel Street tells the story of the suave Jack Manningham who is slowly driving his gentle, devoted wife, Bella, to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness that masks more sinister motives. While Mr. Manningham is out, Bella has an unexpected caller, 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. The suspense rises as the evidence against Manningham unfolds.
