Angel Street (Gaslight)
by Patrick Hamilton

The original psychological thriller
Meet the Manningham's a well to do couple living on Angel Street in 1880's fog-bound London. Jack is a charming and seemingly doting husband to Bella, but something sinister looms under the facade. Bella Manningham is on edge. She hears footsteps in the night; pictures are moving by themselves, and the gaslights dim without even a touch. Her husband is constantly disappearing. He tells her she is "mad", and she starts to believe him. As her grip on reality begins to slip, she finds herself in the middle of a mystery, most foul. This gripping thriller first opened on The West End in 1938 and upon its transfer to New York City became one of the longest running plays on Broadway. It was so popular that it originated the term gaslighting: a form of psychological manipulation where a person tries to make their victim question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Join us for one of the most brilliant and suspenseful pieces of modern theatre: Angel Street, where murder and mystery loom in the air.
