One of the greatest thrillers of all time GASLIGHT returns to UK theatres starring the celebrated stage and television actress Kara Tointon as Bella Manningham, memorably portrayed by Oscar winner Ingrid Bergman in the classic 1944 film adaptation. The UK tour opens at Birmingham’s New Alexandra Theatre on 6 January 2017.

GASLIGHT – Northampton

In Plays, Regional theatre, Reviews by Libby PurvesLeave a Comment

★★★ James Dacre’s leadership of this twin theatre is certainly lively: a dark Oklahoma, King John in Magna Carta year, Arthur Miller’s forgotten The Hook (cheekily, since then Radio 4 has been claiming the “first” production). Add a powerful Brave New World, and now to ring the changes, a preposterously melodramatic, delightfully nasty neo-Victorian melodrama by Patrick Hamilton.
