Gaslight - Newcastle


Major Psychological Thriller Gaslight to open in Newcastle Starring Geraldine Hakewill and Toby Schmitz with Kate Fitzpatrick.

Set to be one of the most talked about performances of 2024, Gaslight, a modern adaptation of the 1940’s suspenseful thriller by Patrick Hamilton and starring Geraldine Hakewill, Toby Schmitz and Kate Fitzpatrick will open Newcastle’s Civic Theatre in June.

The highly-anticipated play, set in 1901 London, remains compellingly relevant in today’s society, as the original source of the term ‘gaslighting’. It is directed by highly-acclaimed Australian director Lee Lewis, and produced by Rodney Rigby for Newtheatricals (Come From Away, Jersey Boys, Good Night, Oscar on Broadway starring Tony Award winner Sean Hayes) and Queensland Theatre.

Gaslight has been adapted by respected Canadian writer / performers Patty Jamieson and Johnna Wright and world premiered at the internationally renowned Shaw Festival in Canada in 2022.

The Newcastle season will mark the return to Newcastle for producer NewTheatricals, who also toured to Newcastle with the award-winning Come From Away.
