The 39 Steps: A Reading School Production

The Reading School Drama Department presents The 39 Steps, a fast-paced spy thriller directed and performed by Year 11 Drama students. 

The 39 Steps is a parody adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock. The original concept and production of a four-actor version of the story was by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon. Patrick Barlow rewrote this adaptation in 2005.

We recently staged an extract from The 39 Steps during our House Music Competition in November. We are pleased to announce that the box office for the full production of The 39 Steps is now open!
