Gaslight

“IN THIS WORLD THERE IS ALWAYS DANGER FOR THOSE WHO ARE AFRAID OF IT.”

 - George Bernard Shaw

Young, trusting, and fragile – Bella Manningham thinks she’s losing her mind. In the evenings, she hears strange noises. The sitting-room gas lamps dim for no apparent reason. Is Bella’s loving relationship with her partner Jack all that it seems?

Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 play introduced us to the powerful term we now use to describe an insidious form of deception and manipulation. 

This liberating adaptation by Johnna Wright and Patty Jamieson, which world premiered at the 2022 Shaw Festival, is a gripping, reimagined thriller of daring and doubt.  Will the “gaslighting” have its intended dire effect, or will our heroine find the strength to save herself?

With all the hallmarks of Victorian Gothic, refreshed with intriguing new insights, GASLIGHT is a thrilling theatrical experience.

Join Geraldine Hakewill, Toby Schmitz, Kate Fitzpatrick and Courtney Cavallaro at the Comedy Theatre from 6 March for this gripping theatrical journey!
