Take a legendary espionage novel, mix in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film version masterpiece, add a dash of Monty Python and you have a hilarious, fast-paced and spectacular spy story.

Patrick Barlow’s Olivier Award-winning stage adaptation was performed for almost a decade at the Criterion Theatre in London’s West End. Now it comes to St Albans for the first time.

A cast of four play 40 roles and with some frantic staging they recreate all the iconic scenes including the intense chase aboard a train, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the bi-plane crash and the death-defying finale at the London Palladium.

It’s the wildest condensed film adaptation ever staged!

“We were treated to a whole film on one small stage! The amazingly talented team of four actors perform approximately 250 roles with an impressive range of accents and character skills. The fast changes between the characters gave the production a wow factor. A must see treat.” Herts Advertiser
