GASLIGHT

by Patrick Hamilton


We realised just recently that Bare Bones have never done a costume piece! Our ladies have never rustled around the stage in long Victorian dresses and no male actor has sported a tail coat.  Well we're about to change all that.  We're presenting a pschological thriller set in the late nineteenth century.  Not just any thriller either. This piece is now considered to be a minor classic.  
When a husband is doing everything in his power to convince his wife that she is insane, you can bet that he's up to no good.  What is he plotting and to whom can she turn for help? 
First performed in 1939 this piece still has the power to grip and thrill an audience.
