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.

The two-time Tony Award-winning treat is packed with non-stop laughs, more than 150 zany characters, played by a cast of five, an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance.

Tickets, priced £12, are available at 01179 633586 or by clicking here.
