The hit comedy thriller Thirty-nine Steps was performed last week at the College Theatre, Eastbourne, in aid of St Wilfrid’s Hospice by four fearless young actors, Megan Good, Bertie Beeching, James Tomlinson and Ed Towey.

They took on the challenge of playing 139 characters in 75 minutes in this relentless roller coaster of a rip roaring yarn about handsome hero Richard Hannay and a mysterious murder at his home.  The intrepid performers planned and executed the entire project from start to finish, determined to raise money for St Wilfrid’s Hospice and enthralled packed audiences of fellow pupils, parents and public alike.  Safe to say the whole adventure was hugely entertaining but much more importantly, in just three evenings of collections, Megan, Bertie, James and Ed, supported by their team of pupil stage hands and technicians, managed to raise a superb £890 for an excellent cause.
