Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a classic spy novel, add a dash of comedy and you get The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for 9 to 99 year olds!
This two-time Tony & Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs.
With over 140 characters (played by just a handful of ridiculously talented actors),
it boasts an onstage plane crash, rooftop train chase, stabbings, handcuffs, missing
fingers – and some good old-fashioned romance…
Richard Hannay, a man with a boring life, meets a woman with a thick foreign accent
who says she’s a spy. But he’s hardly got her home before she’s murdered. Soon, a
mysterious organisation called “The 39 Steps” is in hot pursuit in a nationwide manhunt
that climaxes in a death-defying finale!
With a riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps
amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure. Miss it at your peril!
