EAC Theatre to perform Angel Street

By Lexi Heninger

Thatcher, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Theatre Department is performing Patrick Hamilton’s Angel Street, from February 29, through March 2, 2012, at 7:30 p.m., and on March 3, 2012, at 2:30 p.m. Each performance will take place in the SC-3 theatre under the direction of EAC theatre instructor, John Rice.

Taking place in Victorian London, this play tells the frightening story of Jack and Bella Manningham, residents of Angel Street. It appears that Bella is suffering from insanity, the same illness that caused her mother’s death years earlier. Bella’s husband, Jack, seems to be doing all he can to keep his ailing wife safe from being admitted to the insane asylum. However, Jack’s appearances aren’t quite what they seem to be. Jack is guilty of killing once before, and now is deliberately working to slowly drive his wife out of her mind.

“In the midst of this tragic situation, a stranger enters the house on Angel Street and offers the only escape for Bella,” explains Rice. “Will he be able to gather necessary evidence in time to save this tormented woman’s life, as well as her mind?”

“Although there are no ghosts or vampires or werewolves in the play, there is most assuredly a monster. Come enjoy this Victorian psychological thriller; it is guaranteed to raise the hair on the back of your neck!” says Rice.

Admission for Angel Street is $5 per person. Full-time EAC students and faculty will be admitted free of charge. Tickets can be purchased at the door or by calling EAC’s Ticket Office at (928) 428-8228.
