TICKETS are up for grabs for a new production of acclaimed novel Strangers on a Train.

The 1950 novel was previously thrust into the spotlight by the classic Oscar-winning Alfred Hitchcock film in a tale of intrigue, deception and danger.

Now, Christopher Harper of Coronation Street, John Middleton of Emmerdale, Jack Ashton of Call The Midwife and Hannah Tointon of Mr Selfridge lead the cast in a brand new production of the spellbinding thriller.

From the team that brought you the critically acclaimed and phenomenally successful Gaslight, this astonishingly gripping production is guaranteed to thrill and chill as the suspense mounts.

As a psychological thriller / film noir set on a moving train with some of TV’s most familiar faces, what’s not to love?

The show is set to come to Cardiff’s New Theatre as part of a major UK tour from Tuesday, March 27 – Saturday March 31, 7.30pm.
