Gaslight by Patrick Hamilton - 11, 12 and 13 November 2010

l - r Andrew McMinn, Diane Parsons and Charley Harper.

Our November production was the classic thriller set in Victorian London. Bella Manningham is effectively confined to her room in her husband's gloomy house. The fog about the house is thickening and so is the plot. Why is her husband treating her so badly? What is he looking for every night in the attic rooms and who is the mysterious visitor who claims that he knows?

It was great to have the opportunity to do a period play with associated set and costumes. Audiences enjoyed the tension between the characters and wondering whether Bella would escape her husband's evil clutches!
