By Patrick Hamilton, directed by Hannah Stow
What terrors lurk in the shadows, for Bella Manningham, when her husband mysteriously disappears from the house, and the gas lights dim? This classic psychological thriller, by Patrick Hamilton, set in a Victorian world shrouded in fog, and lit by flickering gaslight, uses every device to unsettle its audience. We share Bella’s growing apprehension and self-doubt. Is she going mad as her husband claims?
Gaslight has been a popular hit since it was written in 1938, enjoying a recent revival with Kara Tointon as the tormented spouse. Please join us as we embark on a nail-biting journey into the Haunted House of Horrors!
