Notes

One of the stranger pieces held in The Bob Watson Archive is related to this reveal of Gaslight. The Scarborough Evening News ran an article in May 1994 noting how the actress Cathy Sara wore the recently released Glossies New Body by lingerie manufacturer Goddard in the play to help achieve the figure required for the role. Today it would be assumed to be an advertorial for the play / lingerie, but this was an actual news piece in 1994.
