The 39 Steps

If you mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, and adapt it for the stage , you have The 39 Steps. It is a fast paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre!

Packed with non stop laughs, over 139 zany characters (played by a cast of four!) create a theatrical experience to remember. This includes an on stage plane crash, a trip over the Forth Bridge on a train, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old fashioned romance!

In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she is a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered!

Soon, a mysterious organisation called The 39 Steps is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt.

This production will be a riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft which will provide audiences with an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
