A psychological thriller

After the 2023 critically-acclaimed production of Columbo-Prescription:Murder, Cathouse Players artistic director Bette Sartore is taking audiences back in time to Victorian London, and Gaslight, the original version, written by Patrick Hamilton in 1938.

It is insightful and accurate in its depiction of the lengths to which an individual will go to inflict psychological menace.

Bella Manningham’s nightmare does come to an end, but not before we are drawn into the dark and utterly devious mind of her husband, Jack.

“There will be some familiar faces in my cast of accomplished Cathouse performers – Fiona Agyeman, Michael Treloar, David Prince, Maggie Browne, and we welcome experienced new member Suzanne Brimley,” Bette said.

“Cameo roles will be taken by Frank Sartore and Galen Sartore, making his onstage debut appearance with us.

“The design and construction skills of Brian Fitches and his bespoke stage furniture never cease to amaze me plus he’ll be stage manager for Gaslight assisted by S.M.in-training, Nicole Katiforis. Our lighting and sound techie is the experienced and unflappable Helen Gramberg.”

Gaslight will be showing at the Kyneton Masonic Centre, 7 Yaldwyn Street West, from June 14-23, for six shows only.
Tickets: $25/20, all inclusive. Companion Card is welcome.

Wine, cheese and nibbles will be served at both Friday evenings, and matinee interval fare, ‘High Tea with Bubbles’ is presented with the usual warm welcome from front-of-house manager Jackie Turner and her team.
