John Buchan's The 39 Steps - memorably filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1935 - is thrillingly adapted by Patrick Barlow as a comedy for the West End stage, playing at London's Criterion Theatre.
After 9 thrilling years in the West End, The 39 Steps has announced it will be closing 5th September 2015.
Richard Hannay is on the run from the police, who suspect him of murdering the woman found stabbed to death in his London flat. His plight takes him to Scotland, where he tries to unravel a potential national security breach in an effort to clear his name.
Nothing has been cut from this hilarious and spectacular version of Britain's most spell-binding thriller - legendary scenes include the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the death-defying (or nearly!) finale!
With four actors playing a minimum of 139 roles, The 39 Steps is the most astonishing theatrical tour de force to hit the West End. At the Criterion Theatre until 5 September 2015, so book your The 39 Steps tickets today!
