Chiller is next summer drama at Sheringham Little Theatre

The spine chiller Gaslight is the latest offering in Sheringham Little Theatre's summer repertory season.

Directed by Illona Linthwaite, the play tells the tale of scheming husband Jack Manningham's mental torture of his young, vulnerable wife Bella.

Set in fogbound London in 1880, the classic psychological thriller by Patrick Hamilton promises to have audiences on the edge of their seats as, via a series of twists and turns, the plot unfolds, revealing a woman who is convinced she is going mad.

However the appearance of police detective Rough sheds a chilling light over what has been taking place within Bella's own home.

Gaslight, which runs until next Tuesday July 19 and from August 10-16, will be followed by Alan Ayckbourn's comedy Absent Friends, which runs from July 21-26 and from August 17-23.

Tickets, priced �15 Friday and Saturday, �14.50 Monday-Thursday, �8.50 under 18s, are available from the box office on 01263 822347. For more information, visit
