This show ran March-April 2022

Written by Patrick Barlow
Directed by Mark Carter

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have the 39 Steps: a fast-paced and hilarious who-dun-it. Four actors play all the roles in this Tony Award winner.

The show hurtles a notorious fugitive and a spellbound blonde from a London music hall north by northwest to Scotland’s most remote highlands. Will they save Britain from a den of devious spies?

A cast of four actors plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure. The 39 Steps contains every single legendary scene from the award-winning movie — including the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the sensational death-defying finale in the London Palladium.

    Adults & older children 12+.
