Gaslight - a still from the famous 1944 film starring Ingrid Bergman
Bonington Theatre, Arnold, NG5 7EE
Wednesday 16th – Saturday 19th October 2013
1880: London in the fog. The gaslights cannot dispel the shadows in the home of the recently married Mr and Mrs Manningham. Why do the lights mysteriously rise and fall of their own accord? Who prowls the attic at night? Is Mrs Manningham losing her sanity, or is her life in deadly danger?
Patrick Hamilton’s play, written in 1938 and twice filmed in the 1940s, continues to offer two hours of absorbing yet escapist entertainment. While the plot revolves around hidden jewels, the dramatic interest is in Hamilton's study of psychological disorder and the author has built up and sustained some of the most brilliant suspense in modern theatre.
