Gripping, suspenseful and visually stunning, Hitchcock’s iconic NORTH BY NORTHWEST comes to the stage in all its glory.

The sensational DAVID CAMPBELL stars as the suave advertising executive Roger O. Thornhill in director Simon Phillips’ boldly-inventive thriller of mistaken identity, spies, kidnapping, romance and adventure.

David Campbell – one of Australia’s most popular entertainers – returns to the stage in the role made famous by Cary Grant in the 1939 classic. The singer, actor, television and radio presenter has dazzled audiences over the years with his dynamic performances, including as Johnny O’Keefe in Shout! and, more recently, his Helpmann Award-winning portrayal of Bobby Darin in the hit musical Dream Lover.

Frantic and funny, Thornhill’s uneventful life is turned upside down when he is thrust into a world of espionage, romance and murder. Abducted by thugs who insist he is a government agent named George Kaplan, the harried New York exec is hunted by ruthless spies in a break-neck journey involving the Feds, crop-dusting planes, a blonde femme fatale and a cliff-hanger that has to be seen to be believed.

Years before the James Bond films there was NORTH BY NORTHWEST – the debonair, witty and captivating thriller that will have Sydney theatre audiences on the edge of their seats.
