Chautauqua Playhouse announces the second show of its 35rd season, the dramatic thriller “Gaslight (Angel Street) by Patrick Hamilton, opening on Oct 14.

Set in fog-bound London in 1880, “Gaslight” is an edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller that tells the story of the Manninghams of Angel Street. Under the guise of kindliness, the handsome Mr. Manningham is torturing his wife into insanity in hopes of getting away with murder. One of the longest running plays in Broadway history, “Gaslight” is the perfect Victorian-era thriller full of intrigue, treachery and good, old-fashioned melodramatic fun.

The production is directed by Jon Jackson and features Sherry Walck, Simon Hunt, Paul Fearn, Lisa Derthick and Shannon Burkett. Set design is by Rodger Hoopman with costumes by Eileen Beaver. Lighting design is by Don Myers.

The show will run at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and at 2 p.m. Sundays through Nov. 20. All performances will be held at the Chautauqua Playhouse, 5325 Engle Road in the La Sierra Community Center in Carmichael. Admission is $19 general and $17 students, seniors, children and SARTA members.
