Casting Patrick Barlow's comical adaptation of The 39 Steps, a fast-paced, often hilariously irreverent re-creation of Alfred Hitchcock's classic mystery thriller film of 1935. Four actors portray some 150 roles. Our leading man, Richard Hannay, meets a mysterious woman at a London music hall. After witnessing her murder, he becomes entangled in solving the murder, proving his innocence, and breaking a spy ring that seems to be attached to the whole affair. All roles require good comic timing.
