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?
Starring Geraldine Hakewill, star of Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries, Toby Schmitz from Boy Swallows Universe and Kate Fitzpatrick, legend of stage and screen, this new psychological thriller will keep you guessing.
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.

Running time approx 2 hours 30 minutes including 20-minute interval.
