The 39 Steps tickets - Breathtaking, fast-paced comedy, "a laugh a minute!"

The 39 Steps is one of Britain's favourite films. Now it's been brought to the West End stage with absolutely breathtaking results! John Buchan's The 39 Steps, first filmed by Hitchcock in 1935, has been adapted for the stage in a very clever way indeed. It's unique. It's a laugh a minute. And the entire story is told by just four actors.

Nothing has been cut. The story remains the same, one of our most spellbinding thrillers. This spectacular stage version includes the legendary chase on the Flying Scotsman, the hero's escape on the dark, forbidding Forth Bridge, the terrifying bi-plane crash and even the famously death-defying finale at the London Palladium.

So how do just four actors manage to cover almost 140 roles? You'll love this. A deserving winner of the Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 2007, it's constantly funny and madly fast-paced. The cast of four work at breakneck speed to change roles and characters, sometimes using just a hat. You're so caught up in the tale it's all perfectly believable. Accents, gender and age change in a flash. The timing's excellent. It's a masterpiece in slapstick. And the props are quite simply brilliant.

The simple set miraculously morphs into different landscapes in the blink of an eye. And there's enough cheesy humour to keep you giggling all night – so book 39 Steps tickets now!
