Cardiff Players are set to breathe new life into the classic comedy drama. The 39 Steps.
The 39 Steps is Patrick Barlow’s Olivier Award winning stage adaptation, based on John Buchan’s gripping whodunit, which was memorably adapted into a film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1935.
Richard Hannay with a boring life, meets a lady with a thick accent, who says she’s a spy. When he takes her home, she is mysteriously murdered, and Hannay soon finds himself off on a journey to clear his name, and to discover what The 39 Steps actually are.
The play is directed by Peter Stickler, who brought Cardiff Player’s successful production of Are You Being Served to the stage and is the first production of the 2018 Season, which will feature One-Act Festival Entry, Mountain Language, the summer production, A Bunch of Amateurs and Trainspotting in October.
