The 39 StepsHitchcock's 1935 movie is a masterpiece of sustained adventure, as the hero - framed for murder - becomes both pursuer and prey for a shadowy international conspiracy. Classic scenes of The 39 Steps - at the Criterion - include vertiginous peril on the Forth Bridge, a frantic biplane pursuit, and the grandstand conclusion in a packed London Palladium. In other words, it's exactly the sort of story that could never be attempted by a fringe theatre company - a fact which forms the central joke of this satisfyingly inventive production. Ticket deals for The 39 Steps are now available. Four actors play 150 different characters, while a small selection of props and some clever lighting effects become the Scottish moors, the West End, and dozens of other locations across the country. Richard Hannay is a ridiculously stiff-upper-lipped hero, a calm spot in the centre of the frantic action. Making a virtue out of silliness, this will be enjoyed by anyone who loves Hitchcock, or takes pleasure in the endless possibilities of the theatre.

About Criterion Theatre

The tiny entrance of the Criterion Theatre is almost invisible among the massive advertisements, traffic and crowds of Piccadilly Circus. To ignore it, however, is to miss one of London's most enchanting theatres. Use of mirrors and stunning murals of clouds and cherubs turns this underground labyrinth into an airy paradise.
