84 Charing Cross Road

Based on a true story and adapted from Helene Hanff’s much-loved best-selling book, 84 Charing Cross Road is a tender and heart-warming tale of transatlantic friendship. Spanning 20 years, this bittersweet sweet comedy charts the extraordinary relationship between a vivacious New York writer and a London bookseller.

Through the exchange of humorous and often intimate correspondence between author Helene Hanff (Hollywood and Broadway legend, Stefanie Powers) and bookseller Frank Doel, (Clive Francis - The Crown, The Queen, An Inspector Calls), a snapshot of Britain from post-war 1940's through to the swinging 60's is revealed, alongside a touching human story that still deeply resonates today.

This major new UK tour also features Fiona Bruce (The Snow Queen), Loren O’Dair (The Grinning Man, King Lear), William Oxborrow (I Happen To Like New York), Samantha Sutherland (The Recruiting Officer) and Ben Tolly (Dusty).

Stefanie Powers plays Helene Hanff. A star of stage and screen with a career spanning over 50 years, Powers is best known for her iconic role opposite Robert Wagner in Hart to Hart, which ran over five series and eight TV movies between 1979 and 1996. Her extensive film and TV credits include McLintock!, The Magnificent Seven Ride Again, The Rockford Files, The Bionic Woman, The Six Million Dollar Man and The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. Clive Francis’ recent theatre credits include An Inspector Calls (West End), Les Blancs (National Theatre) and Enron; on screen he has appeared in The Queen, Mr Turner and most recently as Lord Salisbury in the award-winning Netflix series, The Crown.

84 Charing Cross Road premiered at the Salisbury Playhouse in 1981 before transferring to the West End and Broadway. It was adapted into a film in 1987, starring Anthony Hopkins, Judi Dench and Anne Bancroft as Helene, who won the BAFTA Award for Best Actress.
