Having delighted our audiences in 2017 with Alan Ayckbourn’s The Time of My Life we are very much looking forward to FIRST KNIGHT’S latest production of – possibly – the world’s favourite comedy The 39 Steps.
This smash hit Olivier Award winning comedy brilliantly and hilariously recreates John Buchan’s novel and Alfred Hithcock’s classic thriller. Adapted for the stage by Patrick Barlow, based on a concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon it ran to great acclaim in the West End before achieving international accolades.
Follow the astonishing adventures and daring deeds of our handsome hero Richard Hannay, complete with stiff upper lip and pencil moustache as he comes face to face with dastardly murders, deadly double crossing secret agents and of course deliciously devastating women.
This wonderfully imaginative and gripping comedy thriller packed with nonstop laughs features five fearless actors playing 150 roles in 100 minutes of fast paced fun and thrilling action. A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, ‘The 39 Steps’ amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
