Richard Hannay, a perfect gentleman and dashing hero, meets a mysterious woman at a London theatre, who implores him to take her home with him. She soon confesses to being a spy, hot on the trail of a dangerous organisation. That same night she gets stabbed in his flat and Richard is thrown into a mad chase to escape both the police and the mysterious spy organisation, “the 39 Steps”, whilst trying to solve the riddle behind her murder.

This wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy thriller takes you on a breath-taking and hilarious journey from London to the Scottish Highlands and back. The 39 Steps has taken the West End and Broadway by storm – a delightfully theatrical tour-de-force with four actors performing all 139 parts.
