Britain on the brink of war! Foreign agents on our shores! Can Richard Hannay, innocent man on the run, evade the police, get the girl, and save the country from a ring of murderous spies?

Six plucky actors, who between them will be taking on more than 50 roles, will bring Alfred Hitchcock’s epic cinematic masterpiece to the stage in a visual and emotional feast of drama, villainy, adventure and pure silliness. The production includes the famous chase on the Flying Scotsman train, a scene on the Forth Bridge and the world’s first ever on-stage ‘plane crash…

Described as “a delightfully theatrical tour-de-force”, the 39 Steps took the West End by storm playing at the Criterion Theatre, London for over 9 years. This is a must-see for all ages.

The Edge of Darkness

The Edge of Darkness

An Edwardian Gothic Thriller with lots of twist and turns.

After her disappearance several years ago, Emma finds that her memory is damaged; there is much she does not recognize or understand. Why does she appear familiar with certain Russian phrases; why has she such a horror of a harmless silver bell, of a portrait on the wall, of knives?

The Edge of Darkness is like the stage version of a page turner!

Then a mysterious presence passes across the stage, the Assistant Stage Manager falls to certain death through a trapdoor, and the remaining actors – seeing their number cut one by one – are thrown into disarray. Their panic reaches fever
pitch as the survivors fear the murderer is coming for them.

The Ghost Train

The Ghost Train

All aboard for a classic thriller that will leave you spooked

When a young chap foolishly loses his hat out of a train window, a group of passengers miss their connecting train. In the dead of night, they now find themselves stranded in the middle of the rural Cornish countryside, with the next train not set to arrive until morning.

Despite the frail station master’s warnings that the station is “haunted” (since the fatal wreckage of a train years before) they decide to stay the night. However, what was once construed as an “old wives tale” soon mounts to latent threat, as the stories of this ominous “ghost train” begin to ring true. And when a disturbed young woman comes knocking, tensions between the group quickly escalate. But with the right people to step up to the mark, these ghoulish spirits might well run out of steam…

Climb aboard for this darkly comic, captivating thriller by internationally renowned playwright and actor Arnold Ridley. Originally staged in 1925 in the West End, this fresh revival of Ridley’s classic play is tantalising and suspenseful in equal measure.
