Clive Francis as Frank Doel, reprising the role he played to critical acclaim in 2015.

Adapted from Helene Hanff's best-selling book, 84 Charing Cross Road is the tender and heart-warming tale of transatlantic friendship, a bittersweet comedy 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 humorous and often intimate correspondence.

Stefanie Powers and Clive Francis have many years of experience between them – and you can tell these two are masters of their craft. They light up the stage as Helene and Frank, giving performances full of heart, warmth and humour.

Clive Francis is utterly professional, beautifully nuanced, a charming performance.
