Strangers on a Train pulls into Manchester

David Upton

Visiting Manchester Opera House from February 5 to 10, Strangers on a Train is from the team behind the successful tour of Patrick Hamilton’s Gaslight.

Casting is led by John Middleton (Detective Arthur Gerard) who left Emmerdale earlier this year in a deeply moving storyline, having played the village’s vicar for more than 20 years.

Christopher Harper—currently appearing on Coronation Street as Nathan Curtis—plays the charismatic Charles Bruno, a psychopathic playboy who has a chance encounter with a troubled stranger, Guy Haines (played by Jack Ashton, Call The Midwife).

Hannah Tointon, as Guy’s fiancée, Anne Faulkner, is famed for her roles in Mr Selfridge (alongside her sister, Kara), The Inbetweeners and Hollyoaks.
