An Alfred Hitchcock thriller will be recreated on the stage.

The 39 Steps will be performed at Backwell Playhouse, in Mariners Drive, from Wednesday to Saturday at 7.30pm, with a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday.

Richard Hannay is a man with a boring life until he meets a woman who says she is a spy.

When he takes her home, she is murdered.

Soon, a mysterious organisation called, The 39 Steps, is hot on Hannay's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale.
