The 39 Steps


This event has been and gone.

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

Richard Hannay is a man with a boring life until he meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on Hannay’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale!

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced, riotously funny whodunit!

This two-time Tony© Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a cast of five), an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance! The 39 Steps is an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
