The Festival Town on the Edge of the Lake District
Hitchcock’s classic spy thriller, The 39 Steps, will be ‘brilliantly and hilariously recreated for the stage’ this autumn as a smash hit Olivier Award winning comedy at the Coro Hall.
Taking their cue from Hitchcock’s 1935 film, Ulverston Outsiders describe the performance as ‘very loosely based on the 1915 adventure novel The Thirty-Nine Steps by John Buchan.’
Ulverston Outsiders give an outline of the plot: ‘It is about an everyman civilian in London, Richard Hannay, who becomes caught up in preventing an organisation of spies called the 39 Steps from stealing British military secrets.’
In a ‘wonderfully inventive and gripping’ adaptation, the comedy thriller features ‘four main actors and numerous others playing around 130 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action. The four main roles are played by Duncan Lindsay, Hannah Fishwick, Adam Atkinson and Rob O’Hara.’
Ulverston Outsiders say: ‘Follow the incredible adventures of our handsome hero, complete with stiff-upper-lip, British gung-ho and pencil moustache as he encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, devastatingly beautiful women.’
Directed by Tony Smith, the play will be presented at the Coronation Hall from 20th – 23rd November.
Tickets are £9 for the first day’s performance on Tuesday 20th November, and £10 for the following three night’s performances.
Tickets are on sale now, and can be purchased from the Coro Hall box office on 01229 587140 or via the website: www.corohall.co.uk.
