The best-selling book and hit film The Girl on the Train has been adapted for the stage and has been touring across the UK this year. Now, the thrilling story makes its way to London. The Girl on the Train at the Duke of York’s Theatre plays for a limited run from July 22nd.

Divorced alcoholic Rachel Watson dreams of another life, and her only comfort and escape is watching the same perfect couple through the train window every day. But when Rachel learns that the woman she’s been watching has disappeared, she begins to question whether the couple she watched were really as perfect as they seemed. Finding herself as both witness and suspect, she is thrown into a mystery which will lead to bigger truths than she could have imagined.

Paula Hawkins’ novel was first published in 2015 and became an instant bestseller. In 2016, a  successful film adaptation was created, with Emily Blunt in the lead role of Rachel. Two years later, the stage adaptation made its world premiere at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, and has been touring across the UK since.

Samantha Womack (Eastenders, The Addams Family Musical) stars in the lead role of Rachel. She is joined by Alex Ferns (Chernobyl, Eastenders) as Detective Inspector Gaskill, Marc Elliott (Eastenders, Holby City) as Dr Kamal Abdic and Philip McGinley (Game of Thrones, Vera) as Scott Hipwell.

The Girl on the Train is adapted for the stage by Rachel Wagstaff and Duncan Abel. Joe Murphy directs.
