If you are looking for a thrilling and suspenseful night at the theatre, you might want to check out Gaslight, a play by Patrick Hamilton that explores the dark and twisted dynamics of a marriage based on lies and manipulation. Gaslight tells the story of Bella Manningham, a woman who is slowly losing her grip on reality as her husband Jack tries to convince her that she is insane. He does this by creating strange noises, hiding objects, and dimming the gas lights in their Victorian London home.
But why is he doing this? And what secrets are hidden in the attic?
The play is a masterful example of psychological domestic abuse and toxic masculinity, and it will keep you on the edge of your seat until the end.
Gaslight was first performed in 1938 and has been adapted into two films, both titled Gaslight. The most famous one is the 1944 version starring Ingrid Bergman, who won an Oscar for her performance as Bella. The play also gave rise to the term "gaslighting", which means to manipulate someone into doubting their own sanity or perception of reality.
If you are interested in seeing Gaslight live on stage, you can book your tickets for the performance at the Royal Manor Theatre on Portland, Dorset. The play will run from July 17th to July 22nd, and tickets are available online or at the box office. Don't miss this opportunity to see a classic thriller that will make you question everything you see and hear.
