Synopsis of the Play
A Broadway hit first produced on the West End in 1938, Gaslight tells the story of the Manninghams, who live on Angel Street in 19th century London. As the curtain rises, all appears to be the essence of Victorian tranquility. It is soon apparent, however, that Mr. Manningham, a suavely handsome man, is slowly driving his gentle, devoted wife, Bella, to the brink of insanity with an insinuating kindness that masks more sinister motives. While he is out, Mrs. Manningham has an unexpected caller: amiable, paternal Inspector Rough from Scotland Yard, with some startling news. ‘As the evidence unfolds, the author has built and sustained some of the most brilliant, suspenseful sequences in modern theatre.’
