Natasha Barnes, who famously took over to rave reviews from Sheridan Smith in Funny Girl in the West End will get take on the starring role in a new production of TRYST by Karoline Leach.

Based on a true story, this tense drama tells of serial fraudster, George Love (Fred Perry), who encounters a naïve and vulnerable shop-girl, Adelaide Pinchin (Barnes). Seduced by his charm and elaborate stories of a life she’s never known, Adelaide agrees to run away with him in a secret tryst. What ensues shocks them both as their plans begin to unravel in frightening and unpredictable ways. The story begins as a romantic drama but soon evolves into a riveting thriller with a startling climax. Tryst is a tense, passion fuelled thriller which will stay with you long after the curtain comes down.

TRYST, directed by Phoebe Barran, will play at the Tabard Theatre from 12 October to 5 November, 2017.
