The Lady Vanishes

a Comedy/Thriller by Derek Webb, based on the Alfred Hitchcock film of the same title

An American Premiere Production

Iris Carr, a wealthy young socialite returning by train from a holiday in Eastern Europe, is in a compartment with a honeymoon couple, an austere Baroness, a formidable-looking doctor, and a kindly older British woman named Miss Froy - with whom she quickly forms a friendly acquaintance. After briefly falling asleep, Iris awakens to discover that her new-found friend is no longer there. When Iris questions her fellow travelers as to Miss Froy’s whereabouts, much to her shock they all deny having that the woman had ever been there.

Iris then embarks on a fruitless search for Miss Froy that leads to Iris doubting her own sanity, until – with the help of Max and the professor – she manages to unravel the truth behind the mystery of the lady’s disappearance and rescue her friend from the most dire of consequences before the train arrives at its final destination.
