Photo Flash: Perrin and Betts Join 'The 39 Steps'


Alan Perrin and Nigel Betts will join the cast of Patrick Barlow's multi award-winning adaptation of The 39 Steps.  Joining Josefina Gabrielle and Jo Stone-Fewings, Perrin and Betts join the cast on Monday 28 July in the roles of Man 1 & 2 respectively.  

Best known as Hitchcock's 1935 classic movie thriller, The 39 Steps is directed by Maria Aitken, has designs by Peter McKintosh, lighting design is by Ian Scott, sound design by Mic Pool, and movement by Olivier award-winning Toby Sedgwick.  The 39 Steps is presented by Edward Snape for Fiery Angel Ltd and Tricycle London Productions Ltd in association with the West Yorkshire Playhouse.   Patrick Barlow's adaptation has been playing for over twenty months to sell-out houses at the Criterion Theatre since its transfer from the Tricycle Theatre winning the 2007 Laurence Olivier and award for Best New Comedy.
In the US it has recently been announced that the Broadway production of The 39 Steps has won two Drama Desk Awards for Unique Theatrical Experience and Outstanding Lighting Design.  In the same week it was also announced that the production has been nominated for six Tony awards including Best Play, Best Director and Best Scenic Design.
Maria Aitken's production is performed by four actors playing a minimum of 139 roles and 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 the sensational death-defying finale in the London Palladium, besides many other favourite cinematic moments, including the memorable and controversial 'stockings and suspenders' scene!
