Girl on the train in Highgate, Claudia Roden in Hampstead


John Krasinski is one of those is he or isn’t he Jewish actors. He isn’t, but with Polish parents he looks and sounds the part. Perhaps most famous for being married to Emily Blunt, famous for her role in the Devil Wears Prada and then the blockbuster film The Girl on the Train. This is a long-winded way of saying that a new stage production of The Girl on The Train has opened at Upstairs at The Gatehouse in Highgate. The intimacy of a small space adds to the suspense and tension of this cleverly woven tale which is based on the bestselling novel by Paula Hawkins about commuter Rachel Watson, who longs for a different life. Her only escape from her reality is the perfect couple she watches through the train window every day – happy and in love, or so it seems.

The Girl on the Train is at Upstairs at the Gatehouse until 2 July.
