A farcical comedy by Patrick Barlow and John Buchan from the movie by Alfred Hitchcock

March 17 - 27

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel,  add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps. A man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called The 39 Steps is hot on the man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly  inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an  unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
