The 39 Steps


Adapted by Patrick Barlow from the novel by John Buchan


Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit, perfect for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This highly acclaimed play (awarded two Tony Awards and the Drama Desk Award) is packed with nonstop laughs, on-going surprises, amazing comic expression, some good old-fashioned romance, and over 150 zany characters played by a ridiculously talented cast of four!

The play centers on Richard Hanney, a man with a boring life who is about to embark on an extraordinary adventure after meeting a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. After she is murdered, 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.

Cost: $36.00 for adults, $19.45 for children ages 5-18.
