Posted on 25 June 2019

Following the announcement of a UK tour in Autumn 2019, Bill Kenwright’s The Classic Thriller Theatre Company has now revealed a fresh new cast for its adaptation of The Lady Vanishes, showing at the Belgrade Theatre 24-28 September.

Reunited after their unforgettable performances as mother and son Anne and Frank Foster in Coronation Street, BAFTA nominee Gwen Taylor and Villain of the Year Award-winner Andrew Lancel will lead the cast of this gripping adaptation, based on Alfred Hitchcock’s hit 1938 film.

Joining them on stage will be Classic Thriller Theatre Company favourite Denis Lill ( The Royal, Only Fools and Horses ) as well as Call the Midwife’s Scarlett Archer and British Hit Parade’s Mark Wynter. Nicholas Audsley ( Victoria ) and Ben Nealon ( Soldier, Soldier ) complete the cast.

The production is directed by Roy Marsden, best known to TV audiences for his 15-year stint as Commander Adam Dalgliesh in ITV’s P. D. James series. This is his third production for The Classic Thriller Theatre Company, following Rehearsal for Murder and A Judgement in Stone.

The Lady Vanishes shows at the Belgrade Theatre 24-28 September. Tickets are available to book now.
