Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller is recreated for the stage in this ingenious and inventive adaptation. The hillarious tour de force follows the incredible adventures of our 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, of course, devastatingly beautiful women. Performed by a cast of Clyst Vale’s most exuberant and skilful performers the 39 Steps is packed with nonstop laughs, a multitude of zany characters and some good old-fashioned romance amounting to an unforgettable evening of pure theatrical pleasure!

Mr Edward Fitzwilliam is in love with Miss Fairfax, but since she is a ‘most charming and dear creature; no ordinary wooing will do.’
But what to get a lady of such extraordinary charm and beauty? Luckily for Mr Edward, the local townsfolk have plenty of suggestions (and plenty of things they’re trying to sell).
“The team managed to deliver a sugar-coated wrapping containing absurd humour, surprises, song and dance, sparkling repartee with the audience, and a heart-warming message. Can live theatre get any better than that?“ ***** RemoteGoat
