Buchan introduces his most famous hero, Richard Hannay, who, despite claiming to be an "ordinary fellow", is caught up in the dramatic race against a plot to devastate the British war effort. Hannay is hunted across the Scottish moors by police and spy-ring alike, and must outwit his intelligent and pitiless enemy in the corridors of Whitehall and, finally, at the site of the mysterious thirty-nine steps.

Review: The 39 Steps: A Play

User Review  - G. Derek Adams - Goodreads

Has some pretty demanding technical needs - mainly space-wise. But a very fun, borderline absurdist show. The end was a little bit flat for me, but that is normal for this type of show. Read full review

Review: The 39 Steps: A Play

User Review  - Pam Smith - Goodreads

One of the funniest shows I've ever seen - and a great read. Two parts 'See How They Run' mixed with one part Hitchcock thriller, add a dash of Monty Python and viola - 'The 39 Steps - A Play'. Read full review
