About the play

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 for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This 2-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with laughs and thrills, over 100 characters, played by a talented cast of 4, an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!

In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy. When he takes her home, she is mysteriously murdered. Soon, a secret, ruthless 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 drama, murder, mystery, suspense thriller, and inventive comic farce,  amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
