39 Steps Show Information

39 Steps Theatre Tickets

Everyone knows that laughter is the best medicine, and anyone in need of a shot of mirth to lighten the load will have a worthy belly laugh when taking the 39 Steps in the West End. This farce, adapted by Patrick Barlow from a 1915 novel by John Buchan into a play incorporating substantial elements from the famed 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film version, relies on a talented cast of four.

A serious spy story played for laughs, 39 Steps is ripe with puns and hilarity, as the lead character, Richard Hannay – replete with British gung-ho and pencil moustache-coated stiff upper lip – bumbles his way through a maze of murders, sets of secret agents and encounters with sexy women.

Exceedingly wearing on the four players, who take on 139 different roles in the 100 minutes of stage time, the show is fast and furious, packed with action and brilliant situation comedy. Essentially a spoof, 39 Steps London-style is not one for committed Hitchcock fans, but the dashing hero – a bit of a cad – pleases the pundits intent on some light relief and a fun night out. It’s not a spectacle – props are sparse and lighting is all – but it’s a laugh!
