Theatre Royal Bath Summer Season
July-August 2017

Adapted for the stage from Alfred Hitchcock’s film by Carolyn Burns

Directed by Simon Phillips

Every twist, every thrill, every hairbreadth escape from Alfred Hitchcock’s supreme comedy of suspense is retained for this stunning new stage adaptation which received its world premiere in Melbourne in 2015 and now receives its UK premiere in Bath. North By Northwest is an unmissable theatrical spectacular in which the magic of film and theatre collide live on stage.

By special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, originally produced in association with Melbourne Theatre Company
