Gareth Cassidy / The 39 Steps


We are thrilled you will be able to see GARETH CASSIDY play a myriad of roles in the New Vic Theatre’s production of THE 39 STEPS directed by Theresa Heskins.

Following on from the hugely successful productions of Around The World In 80 Days and Astley’s Astounding Adventures, thrilling spy drama The 39 Steps gets the New Vic treatment!

Richard Hannay, upstanding gent and all-round good guy, finds himself in a bit of a pickle when he wakes up to find a mysterious woman in his apartment. Dead. Now on the run, pursued by all manner of suspicious characters, can Hannay evade capture and clear his name of murder before it’s too late? Will he fall in love along the way? And what exactly are The 39 Steps?

A thrilling, inventive, fast-paced caper, four actors will play over 120 characters in this side-splitting comedy based on John Buchan’s famous  spy novel.

In addition to Gareth, a number of other New Vic favourites star: Rebecca Brewer (Playhouse Creatures), Michael Hugo (Around The World In 80 Days) and Isaac Stanmore (Peter Pan In Scarlet).

By Arrangement with Edward Snape for Fiery Angel Limited John Buchan and Alfred Hitchcock’s THE 39 STEPS. Adapted by Patrick Barlow from an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon.
