The 39 Steps
A comedy by Patrick Barlow, adapted from John Buchan's novel.
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have 39 Steps.
The 39 Steps is a comedic spoof of the classic 1935 Hitchcock film, with only 4 actors portraying more than 150 characters, sometimes changing roles in the blight of an eye. The story follows Richard Hanney as he races to solve the mystery of the 39 Steps while trying to clear his name.
