Re-written for the stage, Hitchcock’s classic thriller soars to new comic heights, with just four actors recreating over 139 characters from the original film; the spies, thrilling rooftop chases, an onstage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance.

Winner of Best Comedy Olivier and Tony awards the London production ran for nine years! Loveday Smith (Sam Mendes’ Cabaret) and Mark Winstanley (director QETC’s The Importance of Being Earnest) head a multi-talented cast for an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure.
