The 39 Steps

by John Buchan Adapted by Patrick Barlow from an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon

12th to 19th October 2019

The season kicks off with a fast-paced, high-octane comedy-thriller. Hitchcock’s brilliant 1935 film was ranked by the British Film Institute as one of the top five best British films of the 20th century. This spectacular theatrical version fully captures the same tension, humour and excitement and won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy.

Legendary scenes include the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge and the first bi-plane crash ever staged. And in case you don’t know the story, we can disclose that The 39 Steps are... no, you’ll just have to come and find out!

Be warned, there will be gunshots, handcuffs and flashing lights... but otherwise just good clean fun!

“A joyous version of the Hitchcock classic”
