Theatre Bacchus presents “The 39 Steps”
Patrick Barlow's The 39 Steps is a parody adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock.
The play's concept calls for the entirety of the 1935 adventure film The 39 Steps to be performed with a cast of only four. These four actors play more than 150 roles! This requires lightning-fast quick-changes and occasionally for them to play multiple characters at once!
Containing every single legendary scene from the award-winning movie — including the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the sensational death-defying finale in the London Palladium, the play is full of allusions to (and puns on the titles of) other Alfred Hitchcock films, including Strangers on a Train, Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest.
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have the intriguing, thrilling, riotous and unmissable comedy. But will they save Britain from a den of devious spies?
Richard Hannay: Mark Ellis
Annabella, Margaret, Pamela: Catherine Hughes

Our performances take place in the beautiful Legacy event space at the Vieni Estates Winery!
The original structure, a barn dating back over 170 years, was relocated to their estate, restored, modernized and heated! The venue is truly breath-taking with its all-original barn-wood interior, accented by Victorian chandeliers!
