Angel Street: Gaslight

Recurring event see all

February 17 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm

Mystery and madness loom in the air in this classic Victorian thriller.  Strange things have been happening in the Manningham household: items go missing, their dog is injured, and Mrs. Manningham hears footsteps coming from the locked, uninhabited top floor.  She fears that she is going mad–that is certainly what Mr. Manningham believes.  But when Detective Rough arrives one night to visit Mrs. Manningham while she is alone, questions arise and secrets are revealed.

First performed in 1939, this play is relevant today since it is the origin of the term “gaslighting” which Merriam-Webster named their “word of the year” for 2022.
