Martin Shaw (Inspector George Gently, Judge John Deed) leads the cast in a new production of the classic stage thriller Gaslight.
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 realizes she is alone with no one to protect her from the footsteps creaking in the attic.
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.
The Alexandra was built in 1901 by William Coutts and was originally called the Lyceum. The theatre is home to first class entertainment and has welcomed productions such as Doctor Dolittle, starring Phillip Schofield and the sell-out version of Peter Pan with Joe Pasquale. This stunning theatre was recently relaunched as The Alexandra following a £650,000 refurbishment.
