Must Close March 15!
The 39 Steps
from the novel by John Buchan
from the movie by Alfred Hitchcock
adapted by Patrick Barlow
A cast of four actors embodies over 150 characters in this fast-paced and riotously funny remix of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 spy thriller film.
In 1930s London, the dashing Richard Hannay starts his evening at the theatre and ends it mistakenly accused of murder. Caught in a maze of espionage, near-death escapes, and flirtatious entanglements, our hero careens across Britain in search of a plausible alibi and the true identity of the killer. This two-time Tony- and Drama Desk Award-winning whodunit is both utterly ridiculous and ridiculously entertaining as it lovingly spoofs the iconic cinematic tropes of film noir.
Run Time: 2 hours, plus 1 intermission
