Hold on to your hats and maintain your stiff upper lips – this gloriously exciting thriller is full of danger, hilarity, derring-do, double-crossing, and dastardly murders.

Loosely based on John Buchan’s novel, and inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film, this fast-paced play set in Britain between the wars puts the cast through its paces as hero Richard Hannay is forced on the run from double-crossing double agents after being accused of murder.

Adapted by Patrick Barlow and directed by Sean Duxbury, with our hero tracked from London to Edinburgh (and back), nowhere is safe and no-one can be trusted.

This ripping yarn will have you laughing out loud as bungling policemen, an underwear salesman and Scottish hoteliers conspire to stop our hero clearing his name and saving King and country.

The 39 Steps is at Chorley Little Theatre from Monday April 28 to Saturday May 3, from 7:30pm to 10pm each evening.

The tickets are priced as follows Monday-Wednesday £6, Thursday-Saturday £8.
