The Court Theatre’s Ryman Healthcare 2022 Season is finally underway as The Girl on the Train prepares to open its five-week season, and the revised 2022 line-up, on 21 May. Rachel Watson is a recently divorced 33-year-old whose life has fallen apart. Her daily train journey kindles an infatuation with a couple she watches from the windows, but what begins harmlessly soon turns into a nightmare when the wife suddenly disappears. As Rachel involves herself in the investigation, she starts to unearth secrets that neither she, nor anyone else, were prepared for.
