The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train

Duke of York's Theatre · 23 JUL - 17 AUG

Adapted from Paula Hawkins’ novel

“If you love a good thriller, this is one you should definitely add to your save list. Adapted from Paula Hawkins’ best-selling novel, this play was first performed in Leeds last year where it got a mixed bag of reviews. Samantha Womack has replaced the lead actress from that run, so it might improve, but it is probably worth waiting to see how the reviews for the London run go before booking. If you add the show to your save list, we'll send you a notification when the first London reviews are out.”

Overview

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 Paula Hawkins’ novel - an international phenomenon selling over twenty million copies worldwide - and starring Samantha Womack, this gripping new play will keep you guessing until the final moment.

Critic reviews

Boozy psycho-thriller rolls clunkily into town

The Arts Desk

Keeps you interested but never truly gripped. The stakes never feel high despite melodrama weaselling its way into the mix

The Upcoming

Despite the talent at its disposal, The Girl on the Train simply cannot live up to its previous incarnations. Unfortunately, it's stuck on the tracks and going nowhere fast

Broadway World

Clumsy and mechanical thriller goes off the rails

Evening Standard

The dialogue thuds and clangs, and draws cypher-like performances out of a cast given little to work with

Time Out

Plodding, unimaginative stage adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ bestselling thriller
