The 39 Steps

A cast of four Lower Sixth A Level drama pupils (Teddy, Jack, Lucy and George) and Ines on sound took to Scruffs ‘stage’ for the last play performed there. They chose an extraordinarily fast-paced tale with numerous character changes ‘The 39 Steps’ which was thrilling, riotous and extremely entertaining!

Scenes included the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, and a bi-plane crash. The audience were kept on the edge of their seats to see whether the notorious fugitive would save Britain from a den of devious spies. A Hitchcock masterpiece mixed with a spy novel and a hint of Monty Python humour were a winning combination for a hugely diverting evening, well done to all involved in this production.
