The 39 Steps Adapted by Patrick Barlow – Miller Centre Theatre Company, Miller Centre Theatre, Caterham – Review

This cast give it their all

Caterham became the scene of Nazi Spies, railway shenanigans, man hunts, seduction, mistaken identity, gun shots, aeroplane crashes, car chases and bagpipes. Thanks to this witty adaptation/pastiche of John Buchan and Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps.

The cast of 12 play dozens of parts each, and the innovative set keeps them and us on our toes. Michael Cooke as the pipe smoking lead, Richard Hannay was just right with his stiff upper lip and double takes to the audience.

Supported superbly by the rest of the cast they brought the varied characters and scenes to life with a knowing wink and tongue in their cheeks.

Why hellooooooo

This really is a feel good, laugh out loud show, that doesn’t take it or the audience too seriously. It was the perfect remedy to a two-hour commute home and I heartily recommend you book your tickets fast for one of the remaining 9 nights as three are sold out already!!

Congratulations to all involved, a riotous and fun night out.
