This Olivier award-winning thriller – which started its life right here in North Yorkshire - will receive its in-the-round UK premiere at the SJT.

Patrick Barlow’s adaptation of the legendary movie played for nine years in London’s West End before playing for two years on Broadway and then in over thirty-nine countries. It is a brilliant, fast-moving spoof including legendary scenes such as the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape from the Forth Bridge, the first ever theatrical bi-plane crash and a death-defying (well nearly) finale.

Paul Robinson says:

“This gripping and hilarious four-man whodunit was an original idea of North Country Theatre before being adapted by Patrick Barlow who turned it into a global smash. 39 Steps makes its return to North Yorkshire after an absence of over twenty years. We can’t wait to share it with our audience again.”
