Fourteen extra dates have been added to the hugely successful tour of The Girl on the Train starring Samantha Womack as Rachel Watson.  The gripping thriller, based on the internationally acclaimed number one best-selling novel by Paula Hawkins and the Dreamworks film has been breaking box office records and playing to packed houses since it opened in Milton Keynes in January.

The tour of The Girl on the Train has been extended until November 2019 – travelling to a further fourteen theatres in Oxford, Canterbury, Birmingham, Aberdeen, Bradford, High Wycombe, Cambridge, Plymouth, Swindon, Bromley, Malvern, Woking, Eastbourne and Cardiff.

Samantha plays Rachel Watson who 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.

Samantha said‘I am absolutely loving playing Rachel in The Girl on the Train.  She’s such an interesting character to play, and we’ve had a brilliant reception from our audiences who have been gripped by her story.  This tour has already been the journey of a life-time and I’m thilled to have the opportunity to take it to even more theatres across the country.’

The current cast also includes:  former Coronation Street star Oliver Farnworth as Scott, John Dougall as DI Gaskill, Naeem Hayatt as Kamal Abdic, Adam Jackson-Smith as  Tom Watson, Lowenna Melrose as Anna Watson, and Kirsty Oswald as Megan Hipwell.  They are joined by Philippa Flynn and Matt Concannon in the ensemble.  The complete cast for the autumn tour will be released later this year.
