Gaslight, the powerful story of a young woman psychologically dominated by her husband, is currently thrilling audiences at The Old Vic. Written by Patrick Hamilton and directed by Peter Gill, it stars Kenneth Cranham, Rosamund Pike and Andrew Woodall.
While Jack Manningham (Woodall) is out on the town, his wife Bella (Pike) stays at home alone, believing she's losing her mind. Mysterious footsteps are heard overhead and the living room gaslights flicker up and down. Questions about Jack's true identity are aroused following the unexpected arrival of Detective Rough (Cranham).
