Hold onto your hats as the Olivier and Tony award winning comedy, The 39 Steps comes to the New Victoria Theatre, Woking from Monday 15 – Saturday 20 April.
Adapted for the stage by Patrick Barlow, the show is based on John Buchan’s 1914 spy thriller The Thirty Nine Steps and the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock classic of the same name and features four fearless actors playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced and action-packed fun.
The show tells the story of Richard Hannay, a terribly dashing moustached young man, who finds himself unexpectedly embroiled in a spy saga and murder. Determined to save King and country, he embarks on a trip from London to Scotland all with a view to saving his name and preventing top-secret information from leaving the country.
The 39 Steps has played all over the world in countries including Australia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Korea, Poland, Spain, South Africa, South America and Turkey. The production has also run on Broadway and toured North America. The universal appear has meant the show has won many awards including an Olivier and Whatonstage.com for Best Comedy, two Tony Awards for Best Lighting and Best Sound Design, two Drama Desk Awards for Unique Theatrical Experience and Outstanding Lighting and the Molière award for Best Comedy.
A book, classic Hitchcock film, two other film versions, a BBC adaptation and stage production cements the appeal of The 39 Steps formula with wonderful story and characters that have stood the test of time – don’t miss you chance to experience this jolly splendid show when it’s at Woking!
