Hollywood and Broadway legend, Stefanie Powers, returns to Cambridge to reprise her role as Helene Hanff as part of a major new UK tour of 84 Charing Cross Road, alongside Clive Francis as Frank Doel.

Adapted from Helene Hanff’s best-selling book, 84 Charing Cross Road is a tender and heartwarming tale of transatlantic friendship. The bittersweet comedy is based on the extraordinary true story of the remarkable relationship that developed over 20 years between a vivacious New York writer and a London bookseller. Through their exchange of humorous and often intimate correspondence a snapshot of Britain from the post-war 1940’s to the swinging 60’s is revealed, alongside a touching human story that still deeply resonates today.

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.
