From page to stage: The Girl on the Train

11 Oct 2019

Based on the internationally acclaimed number one best-selling novel by Paula Hawkins, and the Dreamworks film of the same name, gripping thriller The Girl on the Train now comes to Eastbourne’s Devonshire Park Theatre stage, 4 – 9 November, starring Samantha Womack (Ronnie Mitchell in Eastenders).

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 Womack has starred extensively in television, film and theatre.  She is best known for playing Ronnie Mitchell in BBC1’s EastEnders. Other television credits include roles in Silent Witness, Mount Pleasant and the hugely popular Game On.  Her recent films include: Kingsman: The Golden Circle and Kingsman: The Secret Service alongside Colin Firth and she recently played Morticia in a tour of The Addams Family.

Samantha added: “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.  The novel is about coercive control and obsession, feeling isolated and broken.  This tour has already been the journey of a life-time and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to take it to even more theatres across the country.”
