Director: Shelagh Scarborough
Monday 1st to Saturday 6th April 2019
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have “The 39 Steps”, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This treat of a play is packed with non-stop laughs, loads of zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four or more), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance.
In “The 39 Steps”, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organisation called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! “The 39 Steps” amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
This amateur production of “The 39 Steps” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
