We'll tell you as soon as tickets go on sale:
The Olivier and Tony Award-winning production of The 39 Steps is now in its fifth riotous year in the West End! Based on John Buchan's classic novel and Alfred Hitchcock's memorable movie version, this hilarious comedy stars just four actors who play 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun.
The show follows the incredible adventures of 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 devastatingly beautiful women.
John Buchan’s gripping whodunnit, THE 39 STEPS, memorably filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1935 – is now thrillingly adapted for the stage, and transfers to the Criterion Theatre after a sensational sell-out run at the Tricycle Theatre.
With four actors playing a minimum of one hundred and thirty nine roles, THE 39 STEPS proves to be the most astonishing theatrical tour de force of the year. Book now to avoid incredible disappointment.

Despite mixed fortunes, numerous attempts to interpret The 39 Steps pay testament to a compelling story.
The West End production of The 39 Steps is a show that refuses to die. Seldomly playing to capacity audiences these days it still musters enough interest to tick over and is now well into its sixth West End year. The stage version is adapted by Patrick Barlow and is based on the 1915 novel by John Buchan, but actually leans more towards the better known 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film version. Taking the wry comedic undertones from the film to the next level it emerges as a twisted farce version of the Hitchcock classic. This is heightened by the fact that only four actors appear on stage - one as the lead Richard Hannay, one as the three woman he has romantic liaisons with and another two playing between 100 and 150 other roles, from men, women and children to inanimate objects. They change into these roles at lightning speed, oftentimes having to play multiple characters at the same time with the frenetic pacing played for laughs.
