Step back in time to the glamour and romance of the 1930s at the Playhouse this Christmas with Patrick Barlow’s funny fast-paced comedy spoof of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic movie thriller, The 39 Steps.
It’s 1935 and our handsome hero Richard Hannay, complete with stiff upper lip, and the most perfectly manicured pencil moustache, goes to the theatre for an evening that changes his life as he encounters murders, double-crossing secret agents, and of course, devastatingly beautiful women.
This production contains every single legendary scene from the award-winning Hitchcock thriller – including the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the sensational death-defying finale in the London Palladium and featuring four fearless actors, playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of frenetic fun and thrilling action.
The cast for this production are Dugal Bruce-Lockhart, as our dashing hero Hannay, and Katherine Kingsley as his glamorous yet reluctant accomplice Pamela. Meanwhile Dan Starkey and Richard Braine are the men charged with the task of portraying the majority of the other 137 roles in this fast-paced caper.
This competition has now closed. Congratulations to our winners.
