The 39 Steps

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have...(mystery chords!) THE 39 STEPS, Broadway's most intriguing, most thrilling, most riotous, most UNMISSABLE comedy smash! The mind-blowing cast of 4 plays over 150 characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinarily entertaining adventure. WINNER! 2 TONY AWARDS® ! HILARIOUS FUN FOR THEATRE-LOVERS OF ALL AGES!



In THE 39 STEPS, a comedic play based on Alfred Hitchcock's classic 1935 film, Richard Hannay is pursued by police and escapes to London after a woman is found dead in his flat. A once average and decent man, Hannay is followed as his entanglement with murder, double agents, and seductive women grows. A riveting and enrapturing sequence of scenes follow one after another, as suspense builds, complemented by slapstick humor and farcical dialogue. Requiring the utmost excellence in acting, the scarce scenery and minimal use of props only add to these comedic elements, as folding chairs are transformed into speeding cars and suitcases become the roof of a moving train!



Serving as a side-splitting spy thriller, the play makes references and uses musical excerpts from other Hitchcock films and invites audiences to view a new spin off of a famous work. Here’s the chance to see Broadway’s longest running comedy and a comical side of Hitchcock never seen before!

You can wait years for a world premiere and then two come along at once! Such are the festive treats awaiting theatre-goers to the Lichfield Garrick in Staffordshire following the unveiling of its Christmas 2019 programme. The Garrick is to stage two new productions this Christmas alongside the theatre's traditional, and much-loved, pantomime, which this year is Cinderella. Both of the new productions have been specially commissioned for Lichfield Garrick's newly refurbished studio theatre, and will be given their world premieres during December in the run-up to the big day. But there the similarity ends, with an alternative festive comedy, Christmas Carol Casebook: Away in a Danger, aimed primarily at adults, and Charlie and the Christmas Cat being targeted at children aged 2-7 to give them a fun-filled introduction to live theatre.

St. Dunstan's Theatre Guild of Cranbrook is helping everyone get in the Halloween spirit with their latest show, ZOM-BRIDE, an original comedy Spooktacular!

The cast of characters is played by a troupe of four actors (Molly Dorset, Paul Dorset, Jeff Foust, and Zinke,) most of whom play several different roles, often moments after one another.
