The 39 Steps

by John Buchan 

Adapted by Patrick Barlow

16 November - 2 December 2017
Director: Barbara Hughes

Richard Hannay’s boring life is turned upside down when he meets beautiful spy, Annabelle Schmidt.  When Annabelle is murdered, Richard finds himself being hunted by the mysterious organisation, The 39 Steps.  Who are they?  And what is their devilish secret? 


To find out, Hannay must travel to the Scottish Highlands, foil dastardly foreign agents, cross the moors (many times) and win over the girl.


Join the cast of hundreds (well, four actually – all we could afford) in this mad-cap whodunit based on Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film of John Buchan’s novel.  We know that you’ll love it.  Thankoo!
