GASLIGHT at Shaw FestivalOptional Brunch -Olde Angel Inn - Limited Premium Seats

Do you know where the term Gaslighting came from?

It came from this original 1944 thriller which has been updated and is brought to you by the Shaw Festival Theatre AND it is getting RAVE REVIEWS!

Join us Saturday July 16 for the 2;00pm matinee

Only 3 weeks to book!

Drive or Car pool? Post on the event and arrange in the message system
If you are a fan of thrillers - this play will have you guessing until the very end!!

According to the American Psychological Association - Gaslighting refers to manipulating another person into doubting his or her perceptions, experiences or understanding of events.

The film version starred Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer.
After the death of her famous opera-singing aunt, Paula Alquist is sent to study in Italy to become a great opera singer as well. While there, she falls in love with the charming Gregory Anton. The two return to London, and Paula begins to notice strange goings-on: missing pictures, strange footsteps in the night, and gaslights that dim without being touched. As she fights to retain her sanity, her new husband's intentions come into question.

I have booked PREMIUM front Orchestra Seats so you don't miss a single moment of the action!!

Gaslight is playing at the ROYAL GEORGE THEATRE - this the Theatre at 85 Queen Street in Niagara on the Lake - this is the main street with all the stores and restaurants - this is not the Festival Theatre

Join me first for brunch at the Olde Angel Inn 11:30am - just a 5 minute walk from the theatre - the Olde Angel Inn is one of the most haunted restaurants in Canada - but it also serves the most delicious pub fare from amazing Fish and Chips to Sheppard's Pie.

The Old Angel Inn is just off the main street at 220 Regent Street. It is haunted by among many ghosts Captain Colin Swayze. It is also one of the oldest pubs in Ontario built in 1789
