Every word counts




A classic thriller with a modern twist. 

Patrick Hamilton’s powerful psychological drama. A young woman, Bella Manningham, becomes increasingly uncertain of her own sanity, under pressure from her handsome, charismatic husband. A stranger arrives, saying he is there to help her - but can she trust him? Will she find the strength to break free?

The play was ahead of its time (1938) in exploring coercive control - the intimate and subtle form of abuse recently highlighted in Radio 4’s The Archers. The title gave rise to the modern concept of ‘gaslighting’.
