Date Posted: 14/12/2013

Having celebrated its 3,000th performance at London’s Criterion Theatre on 3rd December, The 39 Steps has welcomed a brand new cast, with Ben Righton taking on the role of hero Richard Hannay.

He will be joined by Ellie Beaven, playing the three women in Hannay’s life, plus Greg Haiste and Nick Holder.

The pair complete the four-strong company as the Men who propel Hannay’s story; with the four actors playing more than 130 characters in 100 minutes. 

Now entering its eighth year in the West End, the comedy play follows protagonist Richard Hannay in a dangerous tale of cat and mouse from London to the Highlands of Scotland and back again.
