‘An ingenious take on the Great Escape’ The Times
‘A dizzying level of stage craft on display in this irresistible tale of derring-do’ The Stage
This London premiere of the story made famous by the 1963 movie starring Steve McQueen, is to be staged in the round at the historic Alexandra Palace Theatre, which was itself a prisoner of war camp between 1914-1919.
Based on the true story behind the escape from the infamous Stalag Luft III prisoner of war camp, Tom, Dick and Harry (the names of the three escape tunnels of course!) will debunk the myths, honour the people involved, and tell the true story of one of the most daring escape attempts in World War II history.
With acrobatics, rousing music, and a script inspired by top secret information that was classified in the war archives until 1972, this is a funny, touching and truly inspiring story.
Co-written by Andrew Pollard, Michael Hugo and Theresa Heskins and brought to the stage by the producer of the worldwide smash-hits The Play That Goes Wrong and SIX the Musical, book now for this extraordinary theatrical adventure.

Tom, Dick & Harry reviews
This is a brilliant and innovative take on the story of the famous escape from Stalag Luft III. High energy performances from all the cast. The night we went there was a standing ovation in spite of the heat, rail strike etc. Well worth seeing before the run ends on 28th August.
I really enjoyed the play, great use of space, audience participation and an amazing venue
This is a great production of the famous story of the escape. The performances are brilliant, the pacing is gripping, the design is imaginative and clever. Well worth seeing!
We absolutely LOVED Tom Dick and Harry at the Alexandra Palace Theatre - It was nothing that we'd expected and everything we'd hoped. It kept us entertained with the most fabulous staging, lighting and sound, and every single part was PERFECTLY cast. One additional cast member is the theatre itself - If you've never been there, go there! Victorian history oozes out of the brickwork!
I was interested to see how the action would be portrayed and was impressed with the meticulous precision with which the scene changes were accomplished. The whole cast performed excellently as an ensemble⁹⁸
