This thriller based on the internationally acclaimed number one best-selling novel by Paula Hawkins has been breaking box office records and playing to packed houses on a major tour since the beginning of the year.
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.
Paula Hawkins said after watching the show: ‘Sam was amazing. You could literally hear a pin drop. Everyone was holding their breath’
Further casting for the London run to be announced.
