Overview

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.

Roger O. Thornhill (the role played in the film by Cary Grant) is a suave and successful advertising executive, abducted by thugs who insist he is a man called George Kaplan. There’s obviously been a mix up. When they don’t believe him, that’s infuriating. When they try to kill him, that’s frightening. And when they pin a murder on him, then it's time to run!

Trailer shows original Melbourne cast.

From New York to South Dakota, Thornhill is chased by spies, Feds, crop-dusting planes and the inevitable cool blonde. Years before the James Bond films there was North by Northwest – a lightning paced thriller that mixed glamour with espionage for a truly irresistible cocktail.

International star Jonathan Watton leads the cast. His recent screen credits include David Cronenberg's Map to the Stars, Murdoch Mysteries, Good God for HBO Canada, and CBC's Don Cherry: Grapes of Wrath. Onstage, his credits include the Candian premieres of The Pitmen Painters and In The Next Room (or The Vibrator Play).

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