Daily Telegraph on 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.

Running time: About 2 hours and 13 minutes (including a 15 minute interval)
