A joyous version of a classic spy thriller.
Adapted by Patrick Barlow
By Arrangement with Edward Snape for Fiery Angel Limited
From an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon
presented by Shattered Windscreen
In this joyous version of the Hitchcock classic spy thriller, The 39 Steps, we follow the adventures of handsome hero, Richard Hannay, complete with stiff upper lip, pencil moustache and British gung-ho as he encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents and, of course, beautiful women.
Nothing has been cut from this hilarious and spectacular version of Britain’s most spell-binding thriller – legendary scenes include the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the biplane crash and the death-defying finale at the London Palladium.
The original production won two Tony Awards 2008, Best New Comedy (Laurence Olivier Awards) 2007 and Unique Theatrical Experience 2008 (Drama Desk Awards).
