The 39 Steps

John Buchan & Alfred Hitchcock’s THE 39 STEPS

Alfred Hitchcock’s classic spy thriller, The 39 Steps, follows the incredible adventures of our handsome hero Richard Hannay, 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.

Theatre Space North East are performing this irreverent but hilarious take on a Hitchcock classic in The Canny Space ( the former Holy Trinity Church) in Sunderland’s East End 20th 21st, 22nd March at 7pm. Using 2 benches, 2 ladders and a window frame (and a lot of hats!) the company will bring perfected chaos to this beautiful and atmospheric building.

You can find the venue here:

There is limited street parking at the venue and as the church is currently awaiting restoration work, there are limited facilities. There will be a ‘hot drinks’ bar to help you keep the chill away. Please wear warm clothing or bring a blanket. Please book your tickets in advance via the link on the home page if you wish to pay by card. Tickers are available on the door by cash only.
