The play by Patrick Hamilton follows a troubled relationship between a debonair husband and his unstable wife, which takes a strange turn with the arrival of a mysterious stranger.
In the shadows and fog of Victorian London, there are many places for secrets to hide.Duke City Repertory Theatre is proud to open their fourth season with one of the most brilliant and suspenseful thrillers in modern theatre. A troubled relationship between a debonair husband and his unstable wife takes a strange turn with the arrival of a mysterious stranger. Gaslight has us ponder the consequences of illuminating the darkest corners of our minds, and the Victorian setting only adds to the claustrophobic paranoia and growing dread. DCRT has been voted Albuquerque’s “Best Theatre Troupe” by Albuquerque the Magazine for two consecutive years. This unique twist on Gaslight will be directed by DCRT Artistic Director Amelia Ampuero, who dons the chair for the first time since 2011’s wildly divisive reasons to be pretty. Audience favorites Frank Taylor Green (POE, Ash Tree) and Lauren Myers (Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, POE) lead the ensemble cast, along with company members Ezra Colon and Katie Becker Colon (Oedipus, POE) and Evening Star Barron (Five Women Wearing the Same Dress). This is the first show for DCRT at its new home The Cell, which it now shares with FUSION Theatre Co.
