Jun. 20-Jul. 14: Angel Street
Olney Theatre Center continues its 75th anniversary season with Angel Street by Patrick Hamilton. The Victorian thriller focuses on a seemingly normal couple living in 19th century London. But when a dedicated Scotland Yard detective shows up at their door, secrets begin to unravel as young Bella struggles to figure out whether she’s losing her mind, or her husband, Jack, is twisting it. You can see the play through July 14.
