"What is the 39 Steps"?

The Production:

British director Alfred Hitchcock, who had a wicked sense  of humor, would undoubtedly have appreciated the theatre  adaptation of The 39 Steps, a madcap spoof of one of his  early film noir thrillers.  The production pays
homage to the plump little director in a unique way.

Four different actors portray more than 50 different  characters, a feat requiring admirable comic timing, lightening quick costume changes and a very strong constitution. Only the lead actor sticks with his original role, and he stays onstage and in motion during the entire performance.  He is joined by a female actress who plays 3 roles throughout the performance, and two other actors who each play all of the rest of the dozen roles in the show.
With love and irreverence, The 39 Steps pays hilarious homage to film noir, Hitchcock and spy movies in general. The show uses the magic of theatre to bring exciting chases  (by car, foot, train and plane) to life on stage. Those moments, along with the general onstage insanity and instant costume changes, make it a hilarious night at the theatre!

The Plot:

Richard Hannay is at a London theatre when a fight breaks
out and a shot is fired.  In the ensuing  panic, he finds
himself holding a frightened Annabella Schmidt, who talks
him into taking her back to his flat.

There, she tells him that she is a spy, being chased by
assassins out to kill her. She claims to have uncovered a man who is the head of a top plot to steal vital British military secrets, implemented by an espionage organization called "The 39 Steps."

The play follows our dashing hero through the next few days  as he runs for his life and struggles to discern who is friend and foe. The fun continues as this frenetic farce careens from place to place and muddle to mess. The conclusion combines mishaps, mistaken identities, and tongue-in-cheek references to everything we like about murder mysteries and film noir detective movies.
