    THE 39 STEPS is currently celebrating five years of performances in London's West End. This landmark event follows on the heels of the play's 2000th performance in July, continuing its reign as the longest-running comedy in the West End. 


    The 5th Anniversary cast of the hit comedy includes Dermot Canavan, Sean Kearns, Laura Rogers and Rufus Wright, who between them play more than 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action.


    Blissfully funny, THE 39 STEPS follows the incredible adventures of dashingly handsome hero Richard Hannay - complete with stiff-upper-lip, British gung-ho and pencil moustache - as he goes on the run from police accused of a dastardly murder, dodges double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, becomes entangled with several devastatingly beautiful women.


    The multi award-winning production contains every single legendary scene from the award-winning 1935 classic Hitchcock movie thriller -  including the chase on The Flying Scotsman train, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the sensational death-defying finale in the London Palladium, as well as the memorable and controversial 'stockings and suspenders' scene. The show opened on 14 September 2006. It played three years on Broadway and has had productions staged in more than 28 countries.
