VANISHING ACT AT THE CHURCHILL THEATRE
Those who loved Hitchcock’s 1939 film The Lady Vanishes – regarded as one of the best British films of all time – might want to see what The Classic Thriller Theatre Company do with the story in their stage adaptation of it, showing at the Churchill Theatre this week. The story follows what happens after socialite Iris meets the quiet Miss Froy on a train, only for her new acquaintance to disappear and all other passengers to deny having seen her. Churchill Theatre, High Street, Bromley BR1 1HA. March 25 – 30, at 7:30pm with 2:30pm matinees on
Tuesday and Saturday. Photo: Paul Coltas
Admission: £18.50 – £38.
