The Show

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python (or perhaps Carol Burnett) and you have this intriguing, thrilling, clever, riotous and unmissable comedy. Our leading man is wrongly accused of murder and tries fervently to stay one step ahead of the police, and a group of spies, as he tries to solve the mystery of “The 39 Steps” while clearing his name.  Along the way, he meets three women who figure prominently in his life as he travels from a London music hall north by northwest to Scotland’s most remote highlands. Will he save Britain from a den of devious spies?  A cast of 4 actors play upwards of 50 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure. The 39 Steps recreates the contains every single legendary scene from the award-winning movie — including the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Fourth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged, and the sensational death-defying finale in the London Palladium.
