Who are Gaslight Productions?

Gaslight Productions Ltd is an exciting new Immersive Theatre Company based in Brighton. The founders are Lisa Douglas, Nadia Strahan and Karen Baker, combining 30 years of theatre experience with insatiable enthusiasm and boundless creativity.

They burst onto the scene with their first show, MISTER FRANKS COTTON CLUB, which premiered at the Brighton Fringe 2018 and received rave reviews. They create original elegant total theatre experiences that combine exciting and political narratives through the delivery of high quality music, dance and performance. 

Gaslight Productions are key innovators in restoring our faith in humanity through the platform of theatre. Their key objective is for their audiences to feel like they matter and to project constant new stories into the space in order to share and witness beautiful, funny, moving, authentic and thought-provoking experiences.

Gaslight Productions combine theatre, dance, music directors and creative consultants to create spaces for everyone's voice to be heard.

After being approached by a Brighton-based company they are crowdfunding for their next exciting project. The wheels are in motion. Let's make this amazing vision a reality.

So where will your money go?

It will:

  • Act as a springboard for Gaslight Productions to continue their vision and bring it to a wider audience.
  • Kickstart the next show, BLUE HEAVEN on November 24th, because you loved the last one, MISTER FRANKS COTTON CLUB.
  • Offer a platform to support local, up and coming businesses, actors, musicians, writers and technicians.
  • Fulfil one of Gaslights core beliefs, that people in the arts should be paid what they're worth.
  • Support the pre-production process that develops immersive narratives for you to enjoy.
  • Help to continue to market this immersive, inclusive, home-grown Brighton company.

"As a result of the reduction in arts funding in the last few years, more than £56 million of arts funding has been cut by local councils in England since 2009, means that companies are using crowdfunding more to finance their projects." 


"The arts should be in our communities, not only on elevated platforms or behind red velvet ropes" 

Kate Tempest

Here are some reviews from MISTER FRANKS COTTON CLUB.

"We had an absolute ball at Mr Frank's! Fantastic atmosphere - and so great to combine space and opportunity to dance with a little theatrical drama. For those who love swing dancing - definitely for you. For complete novices who just want to dress up, enjoy the scene and have a go - just as good, really welcoming and fun. Some free drinks included, and chauffeured back to the Warren by midnight. Highly recommend!" Alison Muir

"Loved it. Lots of fun, really well thought out, lots of care taken in the details of the story. Once at the secret location the atmosphere was fab and all the cast very friendly and welcoming. Amazing music and performers." Emma Wright

"Cracking night. Clearly lots of planning went into it. Great atmosphere, drinks and music. Everyone there loved it. Highly recommended." Tom Hyslop

"Had a great night, would recommend attending and to be sure to try the cocktails! Lots of thought has gone in to the planning, and it came together great... Fancy stepping back in time, then definately give it a whirl... Brilliant music and atmosphere!!" Leigh Twomey

"Great atmosphere, fantastic live music with some entertaining theatre as well. Fantastic location. Loved getting dressed up 1920s style and being swept away from the Warren with a whole of group of people being entertained throughout with plenty of drink (which was unbelievably cheap) before being brought back. I had never danced the Charleston before but thoroughly enjoyed learning some new moves on the dance floor. Definitely would recommend. Unlike any fringe event I’d been to before." Mary Cutler Fish

"Well what a glorious array of talent and ingenuity.. combining performance and atmosphere to deliver a unique and immersive experience .. so hard to find something different and this show ticked all the boxes .. surprises and fun times .. not to be missed .. Brighton best kept non secret secret .." Annie Green
