Have you ever been ‘gaslighted’? Lost confidence in your convictions Referred to as ‘crazy’ or ‘hysterical’?
Gaslight challenges our views on emotional abuse and manipulation; the ease at which we can lose ourselves and our sanity. Today, Gaslight is more relevant than ever as the measure of acceptable behaviour, awareness and understanding of the psychological effects of abuse are hotly debated. Politicians exploit our views on Twitter, Love Island producers push emotional boundaries and the ridiculous rules of dating drive us mad.

Director Richard Beecham returns to Watford Palace Theatre to bring a fresh theatrical energy to this gripping and suspenseful thriller. Hamilton’s original text is translated into a 21st century safe house, where a group of women, fleeing domestic abuse, re-enact the 1938 smash-hit play.

Martin Shaw, one of the UK’s best loved stars returns to the stage in a new production of Patrick Hamilton’s classic psychological thriller Gaslight, in the role of retired Detective Rough. 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 realises 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.
