Adapted by Patrick Barlow.
From the movie by Alfred Hitchcock and the novel by John Buchan.
Strap yourself in for the riotous retro spy caper that’s broken box office records around the world! 10 years after the original smash-hit Wollongong season, this brand new production will fill our stage with a dose of hilariously imaginative theatre mayhem.
A night at the theatre goes spectacularly wrong for dashing adventurer Richard Hannay. Pulled into a web of intrigue and deceit, he must evade shadowy organisations, femme fatales, corrupt constables and frisky farmers’ wives to solve the mystery of the 39 Steps and save the motherland.
Equal parts farce, clowning masterclass, stage wizardry and heart-stopping noir, this thrilling laugh-a-minute wartime conspiracy features four incredible actors performing 139 roles in 100 minutes.
With a knowing wink to the audience, this is Hitchcock at top speed.
