The 39 Steps

Written by Patrick Barlow

Directed by Mark Carter

Presented by the Royal Canadian Theatre Company

Run time: Approximately 2 hours with intermission

The show hurtles a notorious fugitive and a spellbound blonde from a London music hall north by northwest to Scotland’s most remote highlands. Will they save Britain from a den of devious spies?

A cast of four actors plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure. The 39 Steps contains 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.

Show dates:
March 31st at 7:30 pm
April 1st at 7:30 pm
April 2nd at 3:30 pm (RELAXED PERFORMANCE)
April 2nd at 7:30 pm
