Angel House

Richard Blackwood heads to Contact Theatre for new drama

Published on January 29th 2008.

Angel House

How can two brothers with the same upbringing take such different paths?

Fifty years ago, the Vincent family arrived from the West Indies and settled in the West London tower block Angel House. They brought with them suitcases full of hopes and dreams for themselves and future generations. But life has not worked out the way they expected. Over 24 hours, the interwoven stories and secrets of the Angel House residents collide in this new drama.

Written by the UK’s foremost Black playwright, Roy Williams whose plays include Days of Significance (RSC), and Little Sweet Thing (Eclipse Theatre). Roy also wrote the hit BBC series Baby Father, while his 2003 play for the Royal Court, Fallout, is being adapted into a drama for Channel 4 Films.

Leading UK actor, comedian and television presenter Richard Blackwood plays successful lawyer Stephen. Mark Monero joins Richard as his brother, Frank, the ‘big man’ of the estate. Mark’s extensive credits include long-standing EastEnders character Steve Elliott, as well as roles in Judge John Deed (BBC), Trial and Retribution (ITV), and Skins (E4).

Presented by Eclipse Theatre, Angel House aims to develop the national profile of Black British theatre. Now in its fifth year, Eclipse Theatre has built an enviable reputation with productions like Moon on a Rainbow Shaw and Mother Courage. Angel House is set to be no exception.

Angel House is showing at Contact on Tues 12- Sat 16 February.
