“The 39 Steps” is a wildly comic thriller by Patrick Barlow in which the entirety of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 adventure film “The 39 Steps” (with over 150 characters) is performed on stage by a cast of only 4!  It’s filled with dangerous femme fatales, dastardly villains, deadly assassins and lightning-fast costume changes.  Audiences will be delighted as Alfred Hitchcock’s film adaptation of John Buchan’s original story is magically recreated on stage – from the Flying Scotsman train ride to a plane crash – right before your very eyes.

Richard Hannay, British everyman, has a chance encounter with a mysterious female spy in foggy London town.  This launches him on a cross-country mission to exonerate himself of a murder charge, and save his King and country – all while Scotland Yard’s finest are on his heels in unrelenting pursuit.   “The 39 Steps” is an engaging mystery as well as a fast-paced, boisterous comedy, with the more than 150 characters from Hitchcock’s film  performed by a ridiculously talented cast of three men and one woman.

“The 39 Steps” is the winner of two Tony Awards, a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience, the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and France’s Molière Award for Best Comedy.  “The 39 Steps” has performed in more than 20 countries with 771 performances on Broadway and has received more than a billion laughs.
