Programme Note #1: The 39 Steps

TB wrote: ” The 39 Steps the play opened in London’s West end at the Criterion Theatre in 2006 and is running still. So far it has been seen by over 3 million people. When I saw it a few years ago I thought it was brilliant. It was exciting, clever and oh so funny with a great story running through it.

I though to myself at the time this could be a challenge for the future but then instantly dismissed the idea as it was bound to run for years and no amateur companies would get a chance for decades. How wrong I was because here we are with amateur rights. Enjoy!

It is adapted by Patrick Barlow who is an actor, comedian and playwright. His alter ego Desmond Oliver Dingle is the founder, artistic director and chief executive of the two man National Theatre of Brent. ”
