A dark pall hangs over the Manningham flat on Angel Street - even with the gaslights on. A Broadway hit first produced on the West End under the title Gaslight, Angel Street's gripping suspense is still relevant today. A neo-Victorian Gothic suspense thriller set in 1880s London that explores the abusive tactic of gaslighting, the name of which is derived from this play.
"It really can keep you anchored to your seat bolt upright – a work that is everything one could hope for."
