The intriguing and riotous comedy - described as a Hitchcock masterpiece mixed with a juicy spy novel (with a dash of Monty Python for good measure) - is a fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure.

It will be performed by a cast of six who have been working hard to learn all the different accents and quick changes.

The show hurtles a notorious fugitive and a spellbound blonde from a London music hall north by northwest to Scotland's most remote highlands. Will they save Britain from a den of devious spies?

The 39 Steps contains every single legendary scene from the award-winning movie including the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and a sensational death-defying finale.

Directors Keith Gallois and Alison O'Connor said: "This is a rollercoaster ride not to be missed.

"Laughs are guaranteed so don't miss your chance to get in on the action; get your ticket now."
