Princeton Summer Theater presents Gaslight

Ariel Sibert, Sarah Paton, and Evan Thompson as Nancy, Mrs. Manningham, and Mr. Manningham in Princeton Summer Theater play Gaslight at Princeton University’s Hamilton Murray Theater.

Princeton Summer Theater is excited to present a thrilling new production of Patrick Hamilton’s psychological drama Gaslight.

Gaslight opens Thursday, July 5. Performances are July 5-8 and July 12-15. Thursday-Saturday performances will take place at 8 p.m., Saturday will also feature a performance at 2 p.m. Sunday will feature one performance at 2 p.m. Performances will take place in the historic Hamilton Murray Theater on Princeton University’s Campus, across from the Princeton University Chapel.

Originally presented in America as Angel Street, and immortalized by the 1944 film with Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer, this gripping play will keep audiences on the edge of their seats from start to finish. Gaslight takes audiences on a nail-biting journey through one couple’s slow descent into chaos.

Is Mrs. Manningham truly going mad in her London flat, or is her illness merely an illusion created by her husband? And where does Mr. Manningham disappear to every night, while mysterious noises sound from the Manningham attic? In this world of deceit and manipulation, no one can be trusted—even those with the potential to save the Manninghams from themselves.

Starring Princeton Summer Theater Company members Sarah Paton (Mrs. Manningham), Evan Thompson (Mr. Manningham), Andrew Massey (Sergeant Rough), Maeve Brady (Elizabeth) and Ariel Sibert (Nancy). Directed by R.N. Sandberg, Princeton University lecturer in English, theater, and the Lewis Center for the Arts.
