News: Award-winning Comedy The 39 Steps To Tour The UK In 2024

With Gala Night on Thursday 4th April at Richmond Theatre, London. The 39 Steps will tour around the country beginning at Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch.

Patrick Barlow’s hilarious adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s spy thriller ran in London’s West End for nine years, finally closing in 2015.  It won the Olivier Award and What’s On Stage Award for Best Comedy in 2007.  It also took Broadway by storm, winning two Tony Awards and a Drama Desk Award in 2008.  The play, with its quintessentially plucky spirit and dashing sense of British fun, has toured to 39 countries and played to over 3 million people worldwide.

This wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy thriller features four fearless actors, who have yet to be announced, playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action.

The 2024 UK Tour is brought to the stage by the original creative team of director Maria Aitken, with tour director Nicola Samer, designer Peter McKintosh, lighting designer Ian Scott, sound designer Mic Pool, movement director Toby Sedgwick and casting director Abby Galvin.
