The 39 Steps

The 39 Steps


August 31 - September 28, 2014

adapted by Patrick Barlow, from the novel by John Buchan, from the movie of Alfred Hitchcock

a hilarious comedy

Richard Hannay is bored. Annabella Schmidt is a beautiful secret agent with a mysterious accent. He takes her home, but she ends up murdered, and suddenly he is on the run from a foreign power called “The 39 Steps.” A plane crash, hand cuffs, missing fingers and more than a little old-fashioned romance spill across the stage as Richard searches for answers. Part Hitchcock movie, part classic spy novel and 100% love song to the magic of the theater, this fast-paced farce features a cast of four portraying more than 150 characters.

Presented by Bank of North Carolina
