Alfred Hitchcock's

The 39 Steps

Venue Riverside Theatre
Dates 22 April - 24 April 2009

Just four actors play 139 roles in this hilarious, riproaring farce, packed with fast-paced and thrilling action as they conjure up trains, bi-planes, the Forth Railway Bridge, a Scottish bog and the London Palladium.

This brilliant adaptation of Hitchcock’s 1935 film follows the incredible adventures of Richard Hannay, an all action hero with a stiff upper lip and a miraculous habit of getting himself out of situations. Hannay witnesses a murder before being pursued across Scotland, learning too much about a dangerous spy ring and trying to foil the villain’s dastardly plans.

Direct from triumphant seasons in the West End and Broadway with an all-Australian cast, this is physical comedy at its very best.

…simply the funniest show I have seen in recent times. Wonderful, sharp performances, great clowning and fantastically lean writing. And to cap it all, a civilised running time that allows for a comfortable evening both ends.”
Jennifer Saunders
