The 39 Steps Tickets – UK Tour

14 March 2024 - 3 August 2024

West End and Broadway hit play The 39 Steps is back on tour in 2024.

Alfred Hitchcock’s classic spy thriller The 39 Steps is brilliantly and hilariously recreated on stage in this award-winning smash-hit show.

This blissfully funny comedy follows the incredible adventures of our handsome hero Richard Hannay, played by The Crown and Bridgerton star Tom Byrne.

Complete with stiff-upper-lip, British gung-ho and pencil moustache, Hannay encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, devastatingly beautiful women.

A wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy thriller, The 39 Steps features four fearless actors playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action!

  1. I saw this last night, sorry i cant say what the second half was like
    because i could not bring myself to watch another 45 mins of it, all i can
    say is it MUST of got better. Also due to lack of theatre style seating in
    the stalls at the criterion, if the person sat in front of you is taller,
    you are not going to see it anyway .

  2. My husband and went to see this last night it was amazing the actors were so good we really enjoyed a brilliant show.
