The 39 Steps

There have been many adaptations of John Buchan’s classic thriller ‘The 39 Steps’ – from Orson Welles’s radio version to Alfred Hitchcock’s famous film – but none has presented the story with the same comedic energy as the stage show. With four actors playing 130 characters over the course of 100 madcap minutes, ‘The 39 Steps’ has been a vibrant addition to the West End since its debut performance seven years ago. Time Out caught up with the crazed cast to find out what makes this show tick.
