Gaslight – gaslights, gaslighting, gaslighted
Manipulate (someone) by psychological means into doubting their own sanity
From The Archers to Love Island and the #MeToo movement, gaslighting has become part of our vocabulary, and was shortlisted for Word of the Year in 2018 by Oxford English Dictionary.

The cast and crew are proud to be working with Homestart Shepway’s Enhanced New Beginnings Project, who help those who are in abusive relationships and is solely funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. They have made sure that the production is authentic and realistic. They will have a stall in the foyer with information and support.

Although written over 80 years ago, the story of the Manninghams will resonate with today’s audiences, shining a spotlight on this kind of psychological abuse.
