BAFTA-nominated Gwen Taylor and ‘Villain of the Year’ Andrew Lancel are reunited for the first time since their two years together in Coronation Street as Anne Taylor and her evil son Frank Foster. Andrew and Gwen are back in this devilishly fun stage adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes by The Classic Thriller Theatre Company.

When Socialite Iris’ travelling companion disappears, she’s bewildered to find fellow passengers deny ever having seen her. But with the help of musician Max, Iris turns detective, and together they resolve to unravel this perplexing mystery.

Starring alongside Gwen and Andrew is Denis Lill, star of the highly acclaimed TV drama The Royal; Emmerdale and Call the Midwife actress Scarlett Archer, TV and theatre star Mark Wynter (The Mouse Trap, Witness for Prosecution); Nicholas Audsley, best known as the Duke of Monmouth in smash hit TV series Victoria and Ben Nealon (Soldier Soldier).
