When Richard Hannay’s guest turns up dead, all evidence points to him. To clear his name and figure out the mystery of the 39 steps, Hannay bursts into a thrilling adventure.
Four actors play 33 parts in this hilarious and fast-paced show.
The 39 Steps was originally a 1935 British thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Very loosely based on the 1915 adventure novel The Thirty-Nine Steps by John Buchan, the film is about Richard Hannay, who becomes caught up in preventing an organization of spies called The 39 Steps from stealing British military secrets. After being mistakenly accused of the murder of a counter-espionage agent, Hannay goes on the run to Scotland with an attractive woman in the hopes of stopping the spy ring and clearing his name. – Source: Wikipedia
