A BRITISH man with a stiff upper lip will battle against the police, a dastardly German spy and some very dodgy Scottish accents when the hilarious ‘39 Steps’ comes to Droitwich’s Norbury Theatre.
The ‘jolly good show’, based on the classic tale by John Buchan and Alfred Hitchcock, centres around hero Richard Hannay who must solve the riddle of The 39 Steps to acquit himself of murder and save king and country.
The audience needs a lot of imagination and be experts at suspending their disbelief as four intrepid actors play dozens of characters in the fast-paced, riotous 100-minute comedy which won both the Olivier and Tony Awards for Best New Comedy when it was staged in the West End.
It runs at the Friar Street venue from tonight (Wednesday) to the following Saturday (September 13) and then from the following Wednesday to Saturday (September 17 to 20).
Performances are 7.30pm each evening and tickets are £10 (£9 concession).
They can be booked online www.norburytheatre.co.uk or by calling 01905 770154
