About this show

Mix an Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of vintage Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a hilarious whodunit, part espionage thriller and part slapstick comedy, adapted for the stage from the famous film and novel. Shots ring out across a crowded theatre and Richard Hannay is lured into a world of intrigue by a mysterious woman claiming to be a spy. When she winds up dead in his flat, he flees London with the police and a secret organization - called The 39 Steps - hot on his trail. A runaway hit in London and the winner of the 2007 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, this tongue-in-cheek thriller features four actors taking on more than 150 roles.
