From the movie of Alfred Hitchcock

And an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon

Directed by Brian Williams

Monday 13th - Saturday 18th July 2015

This comedy thriller is based on the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock espionage film, but has been transformed into a hilarious theatrical triumph of the highest order.

The story remains very much the same, with all the familiar scenes from the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, and the tense finale at the London Palladium being re-enacted on stage. However, all the action, suspense and comedy are brought together by just 4 extremely versatile actors. This is a very challenging play which requires split-second timing to achieve its full potential.    

Doors open 7:15pm, show starts 7:45pm.
