Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have an intriguing, thrilling, riotous and unmissable comedy.
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 murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! The cast plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure -- train chases, plane crashes, death defying escapes, love, secrets and international espionage -- The 39 Steps has it all!
One of theatre's only action-adventure-comedies, and winner of 2 Tony Awards!
