About this show

'Whodunit' meets 'hilarious' in this recklessly theatrical riff on Alfred Hitchcock's cinematic masterpiece (which in turn was based on John Buchan's spy genre classic). The 39 Steps is a crazy comedy about a man mistaken for a spy then whisked into pursuit of the titular secret society in order to clear his name. A handsome hero (complete with stiff upper lip, pencil moustache and British gung-ho attitude) encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, devastatingly beautiful women, all while trying to escape from an accidental entanglement with a deadly group of spies called "the 39 Steps." A quick witted and acrobatic troupe of four actors will create dozens of locations and over 130 roles in this rollicking evening of winking wisecracks and wow-inducing stage wizardry.
