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?
Paula Hawkins’ international literary phenomenon The Girl on the Train has sold more than twenty million copies worldwide. It had me gripped when I read it! I can’t wait to see this story unfold live onstage and talk to the stars.
Rachel Watson longs for a different life.
Her only escape is the perfect couple she watches through the train window every day, happy and in love. Or so it appears. When Rachel learns that the woman she’s been secretly watching has suddenly disappeared, she finds herself as a witness and even a suspect in a thrilling mystery in which she will face bigger revelations than she could ever have anticipated.
Adapted from the best-selling novel which was also made into a feature film starring Emily Blunt, this gripping new stage adaptation of The Girl on the Train, starring Samantha Womack as Rachel, will keep you guessing until the final moment. It transfers to the West End after selling out on tour.
Womack has starred extensively in television, film and theatre. She is best known for playing Ronnie Mitchell in BBC1’s EastEnders with leading roles in Mount Pleasant and Game On, and the hit films, The Kingsman series.
She’s joined in the West End cast by Chernobyl and EastEnders star Alex Ferns (who previously appeared onstage with Womack in South Pacific) as well as Marc Elliott, Philip McGinley, Adam Jackson-Smith, Lowenna Melrose, Matt Concannon and Philippa Flynn.
