The 39 Steps at the Criterion Theatre



John Buchan's gripping whodunnit, The 39 Steps – memorably filmed by Alfred Hitchcock – is now playing in a stage adaptation on London's West End.

This blissfully funny show follows the incredible adventures of a handsome hero, Richard Hannay, complete with stiff-upper-lip, British gung-ho and pencil moustache, as he encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, devastatingly beautiful women.  

Nothing has been cut from this hilarious and spectacular stage 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 at the London Palladium!

This wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy thriller features four fearless actors, playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action. The 39 Steps is one of the most astonishing theatrical tour de forces to hit the West End in years.
