Gaslight

One of the greatest thrillers of all time hits the UK stage starring the highly acclaimed stage and television actress Kara Tointon.

Gaslight is written by one of the 20th Century’s most renowned British writers, Patrick Hamilton. This masterpiece of suspenseful playwriting will have you on the edge of your seat and is a superb mystery thriller.

While Jack Manningham is on the town each evening his wife Bella (Kara Tointon) is home alone. She can’t explain the disappearance of familiar objects, the mysterious footsteps overhead or the ghostly flickering of living room gaslight - is she losing her mind? Does the terror exist in her imagination or are dark secrets living in her home? The surprise arrival of a retired detective (Keith Allen) leads to a shocking discovery that will shake her respectable Victorian marriage to its core.

In the tradition of heavyweight thrillers from Hitchcock, Christie and Priestley, Gaslight is a genre-defining, sensationally suspenseful, all-round elegant masterpiece.

Leading lady Kara Tointon has received universal critical acclaim for her West End stage roles including the Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion. Further stage credits include the West End revivals of Ayckbourn’s Absent Friends and Relatively Speaking. Television credits include winning the 2013 series of BBC television’s Strictly Come Dancing, Rosalie Selfridge in ITV’s Mr Selfridge, and most recently portraying Maria for the ITV production of The Sound Of Music Live! in December 2015. Complete casting includes Rupert Young who is best known for portraying Sir Leon in the BBC drama series Merlin and Keith Allen direct from the much lauded West End production of Harold Pinter’s The Homecoming.

This new production of Gaslight is the definitive seat-gripping drama not to be missed. A tense and hugely satisfying evening of great British theatre.
