Patrick Barlow's ingenious adaptation of John Buchan's spy novel, in which four actors play 139 roles between them. Barlow's adaptation is heavily influenced by Hitchcock's 1935 film version. Directed by Maria Aitken.
Direct from the West End, Broadway and 25 countries around the globe comes ‘a joyous version of the Alfred Hitchcock classic’ (Sun Times) spy thriller, The 39 Steps, brilliantly and hilariously recreated as the smash hit Olivier Award Winning Best New Comedy.
This blissfully funny show follows the incredible adventures of our handsome hero Richard Hannay, complete with stiff-upper-lip, British gung-ho and pencil moustache as he encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, devastatingly beautiful women.
This wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy thriller features four fearless actors, playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action.
