The Oscar nominated actress BRENDA BLETHYN reads a six-part abridgement of Ethel Lina White’s classic 1930’s railway thriller THE LADY VANISHES.
Best known as the basis for Hitchcock´s classic early film, The Lady Vanishes, Ethel Lina White´s novel “The Wheel Spins” (later renamed as “The Lady Vanishes” following the popularity of Hitchcock’s movie) is a gripping and accomplished work in its own right. The plot is deceptively simple, and the premise – a woman meets an engaging stranger during a long railway journey who later disappears leading to mystery and deception – is classic. It´s easy to see why Hitchcock found this novel so compelling and so well-suited to his particular brand of filmmaking.
Read by one of the UK’s most popular actresses, the twice Oscar nominated Brenda Blethyn, “The Lady Vanishes” promises to take you on a thrilling journey – asking not just whodunnit, but why and how!
