John Buchan’s gripping whodunit – memorably filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1935 – has at last been thrillingly adapted for the stage. This hilarious brand new version is performed by four actors playing a minimum of 150 roles and transfers to the West End after a sensational sell-out run at the Tricycle Theatre.
Nothing has been cut from spectacular premiere of Britain’s most spellbinding thriller – the legendary scenes include the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the death defying finale in the London Palladium!
It’s the most astonishing theatrical tour de force of the year. Book now to avoid incredible disappointment.
All in all, ‘The 39 Steps’ was the best thing that I’ve seen at the Theatre Royal this year
A thoroughly enjoyable production that both mocks and celebrates the spy genre
A bally good show, by Jove!
