Laura Rogers (Annabella Schmidt, Pamela, Margaret), Rufus Wright (Richard Hannay), Dermot Canavan (Man 1), Sean Kearns (Man 2).

Laura Rogers is best known as Sheena Williams in the TV drama “Bad Girls” and also starred in the spin-off West End production “Bad Girls The Musical” at the Garrick Theatre. Rufus Wright’s previous West End roles include “Frost/Nixon”, “Mary Stuart” and “Journey’s End”. Dermot Canavan was last in the West End in “Hairspray”, where he covered both the roles of Edna and Wilbur Turnblad for the entire two-year run at the Shaftesbury Theatre. Sean Kearns played several seasons with the Royal Shakespare Company and was in “Henry IV Parts 1 and 2” and “Bedlam” at the Globe Theatre in 2010.

This comic adaptation began life at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in 2005. It opened at the London Fringe venue, The Tricycle Theatre, 14 Aug 2006, where it ran to 9 Sep 2006 before transferring to The Criterion Theatre, in the West End from 14 Sep 2006. The production had its Broadway premiere on 15 January 2008

It is written by John Buchan and adapted by Patrick Barlow, from an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon.

It is directed by Maria Aitken, designed by Peter McKintosh, lighting by Ian Scott, produced by Edward Snape for Fiery Angel Ltd and The Tricycle Theatre.

The 39 Steps is best known as Hitchcock’s 1935 classic move thriller. This brand new version is performed by four actors playing a minimum of 150 roles and 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, besides many other favourite cinematic moments, including the memorable and controversial ‘stockings and suspenders’ scene!
