The 39 Steps (A Comedy)
18 November - 4 December 2021
Adapted by Patrick Barlow from the novel by John Buchan, from the movie by Alfred Hitchcock
Directed by Shane Mallory
Assistant Director Jo Robbins
A hilarious whodunit based on Alfred Hitchcock’s classic original film. A beautiful woman. An unsuspecting victim. A whole lot of fun! One part epic spy-tale, one part madcap comedy extravaganza. The 39 Steps follows innocent bystander Richard Hannay as he races cross-country from London to Edinburgh and back to solve a mysterious crime: before it's blamed on him! Nothing has been cut from this hilarious and spectacular version of Britain’s most spell-binding thriller – legendary scenes include the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Fourth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the death-defying (or nearly!) finale at the London Palladium!
With four actors playing a minimum of one hundred and thirty-nine roles, ILT has decided to finish 2021 with a bang and stage this production a decade on from the original theatrical tour de force from 2011.
Rated PG: Adult Themes
