Bill Kenwright presents Martin Shaw in a new production of the classic stage thriller which went on to be a hit movie.
A lost watch, a missing brooch, a displaced picture frame… Tricks of the mind perhaps, but for Bella Manningham everything seems horribly real.
As the fog-bound evening draws in and the gaslight dims again, Bella is frightened. She realises that she is alone with no one to protect her from the footsteps creaking in the attic, with only her thoughts to keep her company.
Only the unexpected arrival of former police detective, Rough can help untangle fact from fiction and save a woman on the brink of insanity.
Patrick Hamilton’s Gaslight was first staged in 1938, and in 1944 was adapted as a film starring legendary Academy Award winner Ingrid Bergman.
One of the UK’s best loved actors, Martin Shaw leads a star-studded cast. Best known for his television roles in Judge John Deed, Inspector George Gently and The Professionals, he returns to the stage after his West End triumphs which include An Ideal Husband, Twelve Angry Men, Are You Lonesome Tonight?, A Man for All Seasons and The Best Man.
