Comedian and Hitchcock enthusiast Paul Merton is to make a very special cameo in the hit West End comedy The 39 Steps, for one night only on 12 March 2015 in aid of Comic Relief.
The 39 Steps, which is currently in its ninth award-winning year at the West End’s Criterion Theatre, is a laugh-a-minute, fast paced comedy, with a cast of just four actors playing over a hundred roles through the course of the show. Paul will play the mystery killer and the surprise 5th member of the company, whose hand is usually the only body part seen onstage.
Speaking on his involvement with The 39 Steps, Paul said: ‘The summit of my career as a West End actor’
Producers for The 39 Steps will raise money for this year’s Comic Relief by donating 50% of tickets sales to Thursday night’s performance, as well as bucket collections made available in the theatre foyer for audience donation.
