Bella Manningham is a woman on the edge. She hears footsteps in the night, pictures are moving by themselves and the gaslights in the drawing room dim and flicker without so much as a touch. Her husband is constantly disappearing. He tells her she may be losing her mind and she starts to believe him… As her grip on reality begins to slip, she finds herself in the middle of a terrifying mystery.
Patrick Hamilton’s Gaslight is the stuff of legend. From its first staging 1938, through the 1944 film starring Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer, to lending its name to a legal term in present UK law, this classic Victorian thriller echos through the ages.
