The Angel in the House
Named after Coventry Fallows’ 19thcentury poem extolling the virtues of the “perfect wife,” The Angel in the House begins New Year’s Eve in 1899 in the home of Mrs. Edmund Brown. The highest of England’s high society is gathered to ring in a very special New Year alive with ancient prophecy. When a mysterious stranger arrives and a cold body is found in the garden, the evening takes a shocking turn toward the sinister.
Playwright and director Porkalob (7th and Jackson) offers an original lens on the classic style of the Victorian thriller using societal norms of then to skewer those of today. Exploring gender roles, sexuality, and power, The Angel in the House is a delicious, blood-soaked romp with all of the trappings of a bodice-ripper and the searing social commentary we have come to expect from Ms. Porkalob.
With Nordo’s singular ability to turn a play into an experience, audiences will dine in The Culinarium at Nordo, transformed into the great room of Sir Edmund Brown’s estate, where live music and exquisite cuisine creates a fully immersive gothic celebration.
