Barrington Stage Explores Psychological Manipulation With Gaslight
Performances of Patrick Hamilton's drama begin tonight on the Boyd-Quinson Mainstage.
Patrick Hamilton's 1938 drama tells the story of a suavely handsome man who slowly drives his wife to the brink of insanity by sowing seeds of doubt, memory loss, and misperceptions. Louisa Proske directs.
Features in the cast are Kim Stauffer as Mrs. Manningham, Mark H. Dold as Mr. Manningham, Kevin O'Rourke as Rough, Peggy Pharr Wilson as Elizabeth, and Ali Rose Dachis as Nancy.
Before the performance on Sunday, October 15, Barrington Stage will host Gaslighting: Psychological Manipulation and Bullying — The Disturbing Trend in Relationships Today. The symposium's panelists will offer a discussion about realistic strategies for combating psychological manipulation and bullying.
Performances of Gaslight continue through October 22.
