One small step for actors, 39 Steps for Ipswich School

Sixth formers from Ipswich School are in their final rehearsals for The 39 Steps, this year’s Christmas production, which takes to the stage at the end of the week.

This blissfully funny show follows the incredible adventures of the 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.

The play is described as a cross between a comedy and a mystery story, and was adapted from John Buchan’s novel The Thirty-Nine Steps for the stage by Patrick Barlow in 2005 before its success led to it being performed at the Criterion Theatre in London in 2006 where it has been showing ever since.

But there’s no need to go to the West End this year as you can now enjoy this wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy thriller here in Ipswich.  It features four fearless actors, playing hundreds of roles in one hundred minutes of fast-paced fun and thrilling action. 

The play will be onstage on Thursday 5 and Friday 6 December, in Great School starting at 7pm.  Tickets cost just £2.50 each and are available from the school.

The 39 Steps: By arrangement with Edward Snape for Fiery Angel Limited.  John Buchan and Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps.  Adapted by Patrick Barlow.  From an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon.
