About The 39 Steps

Hitchcock meets hilarious in this madcap stage adaptation of the classic movie by the Master of Suspense. John Buchan’s gripping whodunnit - memorably filmed by Hitchcock in 1935 - has at last been thrillingly adapted for the stage by Patrick Barlow. 

This astonishing theatrical tour-de-force is performed by just four actors essaying 139 roles, but nothing has been cut from this spectacularly silly, side-splitting version of Britain's most spellbinding thriller. 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 at the London Palladium.

Seats in the rear stalls with a face value of £25 are classed as restricted view.
