Emilia Fox stars as troubled newlywed Bella Manningham in this new audio production of the classic thriller Gaslight. Despite having seemingly every advantage, including a doting husband, Bella feels as though she is slowly being driven mad … but can the source of her madness truly be her husband’s doing? What is the dark, terrible secret lurking in his past, and where does he disappear to each evening? Left alone in her dingy parlor with the dimming gaslight, is Bella really going insane? Does police detective Rough hold all the answers? Will anybody be able to save her from her darkened fate?

Other cast members include Sean Connolly as Jack, Helen Oakleigh as Nancy, Rosemary Smith as Elizabeth, and Terry Molloy as Inspector Rough. Written in 1938, and memorably filmed in 1944 with Ingrid Bergman, Gaslight is a classic thriller and tense study of the power of good and evil.

About the Author

Patrick Hamilton (1904-1962) was an English playwright and novelist. He was born Anthony Walter Patrick Hamilton in Hassocks, near Brighton, to writer parents. Due to his father’s alcoholism and financial ineptitude, the family spent much of Hamilton’s childhood living in boarding houses. His education was patchy, and ended just after his fifteenth birthday when his mother withdrew him from Westminster School.

After a brief career as an actor, he became a novelist with the publication of Monday Morning, written when he was nineteen. His first real success came several years later with his play Rope, later made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock. His novel Hangover Square, published in 1941, is often judged his most accomplished work and still sells well today.

Hamilton drank excessively. He died of cirrhosis of the liver and kidney failure in 1962.
