Television and stage star Jill Halfpenny will take the lead role of Rachel Watson, the disillusioned commuter who finds herself a suspect in a thrilling mystery, in the world premiere of ‘The Girl on the Train’, the new stage adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ gripping best-seller.

Directed by Joe Murphy, the play will be staged at West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds from May 12 to June 9.

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.
