Comedy-thriller adventure Alfred Hitchcock's THE 39 STEPS, packed with nonstop laughs and over 150 eccentric characters all played by four actors, is a riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft that amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure. A mysterious organization "The 39 Steps" is hot on an ordinary man's trail in a nationwide manhunt, after a woman who claimed to be a spy is murdered. What follows is an exhilarating mix of Hitchcock masterpiece, juicy spy novel intrigue, and a dash of Monty Python madcap in a fast-paced whodunit perfect for all ages.

Houston native Mark Price (Sherlock Holmes and the Suicide Club, Broadway: Mary Poppins) returns to the Alley while Bruce Warren (Theatre Squared: The Ding Dong, Off-Broadway: The Road to Qatar!) makes his Alley debut.
