The 39 Steps, currently celebrating its sixth year at the West End’s Criterion Theatre, will tour the UK in 2013.
Based on John Buchan’s 1914 spy thriller The Thirty Nine Steps, and adapted for the stage by Patrick Barlow (Desmond Oliver Dingle/The National Theatre of Brent), the Olivier and Tony Award winning production will visit the Theatre Royal Nottingham from 15-20 July.
Follow our handsome hero Richard Hannay in this blissfully funny comedy thriller featuring four fearless actors playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun. Complete with stiff upper lip, British gung-ho and devastatingly beautiful women, The 39 Steps is a must see!
The 39 Steps is directed by Maria Aitken, with design by Peter McKintosh, lighting by Ian Scott, sound by Mic Pool and movement by Toby Sedgwick. It is presented by Edward Snape for Fiery Angel and Tricycle London Productions with the West Yorkshire Playhouse.
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 39 Steps 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.
