Gaslight by Patrick Hamilton
Directed by Julia Claußen and Martina Plieger
This psychological thriller set in Victorian London will kick off the 2018/19 season: manipulation and insanity lie at the centre of Patrick Hamilton’s play – are Bella Manningham and her husband Jack rightly worried about her mental state-of-mind? Who is manipulating whom, and who is the one on the verge of madness? The lines between truth and fiction become even more decidedly blurred when a former police detective enters the scene, unearthing a long-forgotten mystery. In his play, Patrick Hamilton creates an ever-changing reality for his characters that will keep audiences guessing until the very end.
“Gaslight” was adapted twice for the big screen. The 1944 version was directed by George Cukor and starred Ingrid Bergmann, Charles Boyer and Joseph Cotton.
