By John Buchan | Adapted by Patrick Barlow

Directed by Adam Nichols | Presented by OVO

Take a legendary espionage novel, mix in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film version masterpiece, add a dash of Monty Python and you have a hilarious, fast-paced and spectacular spy story.

Patrick Barlow’s Olivier Award-winning stage adaptation was performed for almost a decade at the Criterion Theatre in London’s West End. Now it comes to St Albans for the first time.

A cast of four play 40 roles and with some frantic staging they recreate all the iconic scenes including the intense chase aboard a train, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the bi-plane crash and the death-defying finale at the London Palladium.

It’s the wildest condensed film adaptation ever staged!
