Hollywood and Broadway legend Stefanie Powers stars as Helene Hanff in a new production 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 1940s to the swinging 60s is revealed, alongside a touching human story that still deeply resonates today.

Stefanie Powers is a star of stage and screen with a career spanning over 50 years. Best known for her iconic role opposite Robert Wagner in Hart to Hart, her extensive film and TV credits include The Bionic Woman and The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. Clive Francis’ recent theatre credits include An Inspector Calls (West End) and Les Blancs (National Theatre). On screen he has appeared most recently as Lord Salisbury in the award-winning series, The Crown
