Following the success of 'The Take', an impressive home grown cast line up for another adaptation of a Martina Cole crime novel.
Set in the dark world of London's Soho and New York, 'The Runaway' is a compelling drama set in the 1960s and 70s, following the story of a runaway girl, a transvestite, and an epic love story.
Starring Emmy nominee and Tony Award winner Alan Cumming (X-Men), Keith Allen (Robin Hood), Jack O'Connell (Skins), and an exciting debut role by Joanna Vanderham, this thrilling drama is a must see.
When Cathy Connor (Vanerham) and Eamonn Docherty (O'Connell) are thrown together as children in the East End of London, their fate is sealed. Cathy's miserable life of prostitution changes forever when she is forced into care, and then compelled to run away and survive on the streets of Soho. Meanwhile, Eamonn has gained quite a reputation as a ruthless villain. When their paths cross once more, they discover that their past is not far behind.
