Running time: 120 mins

In this play, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film (based on John Buchan’s book) has been recreated for the stage in comedy form. Featuring four incredible actors tackling over 100 different roles at breakneck speeds, this is a comedy thriller like no other!

This adaptation, by Patrick Barlow, ran in the West End from 2006–2015, making it the fifth longest running play in West End history, and scooping up the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy along the way.

London. 1935. August.

Europe rumbles in the background as Richard Hannay slouches home. His club smells of old duffers. The weather makes him liverish. He is bored.

But by chance, on a casual visit to the theatre, he falls in with the mysterious Annabella Schmidt. She sweeps him up, and suddenly Richard Hannay is a player in the deadliest of games. Now he must criss-cross the country to clear his name and uncover the true nature of…
