“Gaslight (verb): A form of psychological manipulation where a person seeks to make a targeted individual or group question their own memory, perception and sanity.”

Bella Manningham is on edge. She’s hearing footsteps in the night, pictures are moving by themselves and the gaslights in the drawing-room dim without even a touch. Her husband is constantly disappearing. He tells her she may be mad and she starts to believe him… As her grip on reality begins to slip, she finds herself in the middle of a mystery most foul.

A mind-bending Victorian thriller, Patrick Hamilton’s Gaslight is the stuff of legend. Written in 1938 and spawning the 1944 film starring Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer, director Catherine Fitzgerald brings this classic creep show storming into 2020 in a production that sees it become more vital than ever.

“Who could have ever foreseen that the title of a crime thriller from the 1930s would become a buzzword in our conversations about gender politics and our relationships today? I can’t wait to see how Catherine flips this classic psychodrama on its head with a new twist that still honours the play’s original power and shock.” – Mitchell
