Bella and Jack Manningham live on London’s Angel Street during the 19th century. Their seemingly happy, tranquil marriage is marred by the insanity slowly overtaking Bella, just as it did her mother. Bella has an unexpected caller one day, Inspector Rough of Scotland Yard. Rough has some
frightening theories about a murder committed fifteen years earlier in the very same house. Those theories involve Jack and could affect Bella’s life forever. Bella and the Inspector plot to discover the truth in a story that contains some of the most brilliant, suspenseful sequences in modern theater.

Presented by McKinney Repertory Theatre and written by Patrick Hamilton, some audience members may know this show better by its Hollywood title, Gaslight. Director Tammy Venable has assembled a talented cast for this psychological thriller: Ali Gage (Bella Manningham), Jeremy Bukaty (Jack Manningham), Stan Kelly (Inspector Rough), Deborah Barrax (Nancy) and Sara Jones (Elizabeth). Producer and Stage Manager Jean Roberts Wadsworth, Dale Gutt (Co-Producer), Summer Brynn (Costuming), Lauren Venable (Hair/Make-Up Design), and Jessie Johnson (Props Design) comprise the production team.

Performances are Friday and Saturday nights, October 5 – October 13 at 8:00. Matinee performances are Sunday, October 7, and Saturday, October 13 at 3 p.m. in the Courtroom Theatre at the McKinney Performing Arts Center (MPAC).
