The 39 Steps (2012)Edit

by Patrick BarlowEdit

Summary: Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of merry mayhem and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced espionage thriller for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This award-winning treat is packed with loads of laughs, over 150 zany characters played by 4 actors, 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 murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization and the police are hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale!

TLT presents "The 39 Steps"

The 39 Steps is adapted by Patrick Barlow from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock. The play's concept centers around four members of a theatre troupe who love Hitchcock's film so much that they decide to recreate it onstage. But how do 4 performers reenact the 150 roles in the film? One actor plays the hero, Richard Hannay; an actress plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements; two other actors play every other character in the show: heroes, villains, men women, and even the occasional inanimate object. This often requires lightning fast quick-changes and occasionally for them to play multiple characters at once. The film's serious spy story is played mainly for laughs and the script is full of allusions to other Hitchcock films, including Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo, and North by Northwest.

Great show! I was blown away by the cast and how they were able to pull off so many amazing set changes, costume swaps and even role changes. It was awesome that they were able to remember what accent to use.
