Christopher Harper (Coronation Street), John Middleton (Emmerdale), Jack Ashton (Call The Midwife) and Hannah Tointon (Mr Selfridge) lead the cast in a brand-new production of the spellbinding thriller, from the team that brought you the hit production Gaslight.

Strangers on a Train is based on the world renowned 1950 novel by Patricia Highsmith made universally famous by the classic Oscar-winning Alfred Hitchcock film. In the great tradition of Hitchcock, this spine-chilling tale will delight you with its dark wit whilst having you on the edge of your seat from the start.

A fateful encounter takes place between two men in the dining carriage of a train crossing America. Guy is the successful businessman with a nagging jealousy; Charles is the cold, calculating chancer with a dark secret. A daring and dangerous plan develops from this casual conversation setting in motion a chain of events that will change the two men’s lives forever.

The cast is led by Chris Harper, Coronation Street’s Nathan Curtis, playing the charismatic and manipulative Charles Bruno. Having played Vicar Ashley Thomas in Emmerdale for over 20 years, John Middleton makes his UK touring stage debut as Detective Arthur Gerard. Completing the line-up is Call The Midwife favourite Jack Ashton as the troubled Guy Haines alongside Mr Selfridge star Hannah Tointon as Guy’s fiancée Anne Faulkner.

This astonishingly gripping production is guaranteed to thrill and chill as the suspense mounts.
