A PART OF “AROUSAL – A REAWAKENING”
The 39 Steps is a fast-paced, side-splitting comedy featuring over a hundred characters played by four actors. Based on the 1935 Hitchcock spy thriller movie and novel by John Buchan, the stage production is currently the longest running comedy in London’s West End.
Paying homage to the ‘spy’ genre and other classic Hitchcock films, thespectacularly funny and cleverly performed stage adaptation of The 39 Steps was hailed as being “theatre at its finest” by The New York Times. This rip-roaring night out for all the family, is produced by HIT Productions and directed by former New Moon Theatre Company AD Terence O’Connell. It is a side-splitting tour-de-force already seen by over 3 million people in more than 60 countries
