By Arrangement with Edward Snape for Fiery Angel Limited

John Buchan and Alfred Hitchcock’s THE 39 STEPS

Adapted by Patrick Barlow

From an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon.

“a witty, high-energy show that is a tantalising mix of vaudeville and great storytelling” NE Lifestyle magazine 

"one of the funniest shows I have seen so far this year and yet another example of the versatility of the team at the People's" - Break A Leg

Tweed-clad action hero and all-round spiffing chap Richard Hannay gets caught up in a conspiracy of international espionage. But foreign spies are no match for our unflappable adventurer.

Both Buchan’s 1915 novel and Hitchcock’s legendary film are magnificently parodied in this gag-laden ripping yarn.

This hilarious and irreverently playful tribute to a whole genre of British thriller fiction took the West End by storm when it first appeared twenty years ago, with The Guardian calling it "theatrical tomfoolery to die for"!
