Our next production is.....
...the famous Victorian thriller ‘Gaslight’, by Patrick Hamilton.
It's become part of the language. Gaslighting: "to manipulate someone by psychological means into doubting their own sanity". But did you know that the origin of that word is the title of a play? It comes from the 1938 play Gaslight by the British dramatist Patrick Hamilton and two film adaptations (1940 and 1944), both named Gaslight, about a woman whose husband slowly manipulates her into believing that she is going insane.
So, it's both a classic, and relevant psychologically today.
We'll be presenting the play, on the Gaiety stage, on Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th October. As soon as tickets are available, we'll put a link to the Gaiety box office on our Buy tickets page and on our Facebook page.
