Jonathan Watton stars as Roger O. Thornhill, the role Cary Grant played in the 1959 film. He is joined by Angus Brown, Christopher Chilton, Tom Davey, Olivia Fines, Kieran Gough, Nick Harris, Joanna Van Kampen, Gerald Kyd, Abigail McKern, Roddy Peters and Nick Sampson.
Roger O. Thornhill is a suave and successful advertising executive, abducted by thugs who insist he is a man called George Kaplan. There’s obviously been a mix up. When they don’t believe him, that’s infuriating. When they try to kill him, that’s frightening. And when they pin a murder on him, then it’s time to run!
