The 39 Steps
Hilarious live adaptation of John Buchan's spellbinding thriller
Stiffen that upper lip, chaps. This is British gung-ho at its finest. Pencil-moustached hero Richard Hannay deals with murder, secret agents and beautiful women. With four actors playing a minimum of 130 roles in 100 minutes, The 39 Steps is the most astonishing theatrical tour de force. Scenes include the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge and the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged.
"In an age of nostalgia, The 39 Steps strikes an excellent balance between utter farce and intelligent wit."
