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. However something, or someone, is driving Bella Manningham to the brink of insanity. Her belongings go missing, her husband mysteriously disappears every night – and a stranger appears at her door one evening with an outrageous story. Can he be trusted? Who can she trust? Who would you trust if you couldn’t trust your own mind?

Characters

Jack Manningham: tall and good-looking, about 45. He is heavily moustached and bearded and perhaps a little too well dressed. His manner is suave and authoritative, with a touch of mystery…

Bella Manningham: about 34. She has been good-looking, almost a beauty – but now she has a haggard, wan, frightened air, with rings under her eyes, which tell of sleepless nights and worse.

Rough: former police detective; middle-aged, graying, short, wiry, active, brusque, friendly, overbearing. He has a low chuckle and completely dominates the scene from the beginning.

Nancy: a precocious, pretty girl of 19.

Elizabeth: a stout, amiable, subservient woman of 50.


The show dates are October 12-14 & 18-21.

Rehearsals will be Monday through Friday6 – 9 p.m. and will start September 3rd.
