To “gaslight” someone is a form of emotional abuse where a person’s experiences are manipulated – systematically – so that they no longer trust their own judgment. The behaviours are clearly codified in this play by Patrick Hamilton – written in the late 30’s and originally set within the time of “the feeble dawn between gaslight and tea” (Patrick Hamilton) and billed as “A Victorian Thriller”.
The story focuses on Jack and Bella Manningham, the latter clearly anxious – and as the play progresses we begin to learn exactly what is causing the problems within the household. A review of Hamilton’s work identified that he appeared to believe “…our greatest enemies are those closest to us”, and sometimes, there is no ‘good’ reason as to why those we love can turn out to be such a threat.
