The stage adaptation of The 39 Steps will tour the UK next year.

Now in its sixth year at the West End's Criterion Theatre, a touring production of the show will launch on January 19, 2013 at Cambridge Arts Theatre, with dates current booked until July 20. It will be produced by Edward Snape for Fiery Angel Ltd and Tricycle London Productions Ltd in association with West Yorkshire Playhouse.

The 39 Steps is directed by Maria Aitken, with design by Peter McKintosh, lighting by Ian Scott, sound by Mic Pool and movement by Toby Sedgwick. The show is based on John Buchan’s 1914 spy thriller The Thirty Nine Steps, and adapted for the stage by Patrick Barlow.

The West End production of The 39 Steps continues at the Criterion Theatre and is currently booking until March 30, 2013.
