What is it about a great whodunnit thriller? What makes us keep turning the page? How does that inquisitive excitement translate onstage?
As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Thursday 1 August 2019, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock is in the West End for the transfer of Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train, starring Samantha Womack. Unmissable! Got any questions?
Alex Ferns, Marc Elliott and Philip McGinley will join the cast of the record-breaking production of The Girl on the Train for its London run. Starring Samantha Womack as Rachel Watson, the production will run at London’s Duke of York’s Theatre from 23 July to 17 August 2019.
Whether you know the story or not, The Girl On the Train will keep you on the edge of your seat right up until the end.
The Girl on the Train is contemporary, both in its subject and staging. There is a strong balance between a suspenseful whodunit that drives the play and a psychological element about memory and control, and abusive relationships.
If you missed the phenomenon of Paula Hawkins’ best-selling novel in 2015, you now have the perfect opportunity to jump on the band wagon with this new thrilling play adaptation of The Girl on the Train.
