The 39 Steps

The 39 Steps

Adapted by Patrick Barlow

From the novel by John Buchan

From the movie by Alfred Hitchcock

Directed by Evan Hoffmann

What do you get when you mix a Hitchcock masterpiece, a juicy spy novel, and just a dash of Monty Python? One of the cleverest, exciting, and hysterical plays to come out of Broadway in years! An amazing cast of 4 takes on more than 140 characters in a fast-paced whodunit that zips across England and Scotland. Murder, high speed chases, mistaken identities, espionage, and romance will keep you on the edge of your seat in this loving homage to the classic spy thriller films of the 30’s.
Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

“For me, the best thing about this company has always been how our actors, directors, and designers come up with exciting and creative ways to fit epic stories into our tiny little theatre. This reimagining of Alfred Hitchcock’s early masterpiece seemed like the perfect way to keep that tradition alive as we begin our next phase.”

Evan Hoffmann, NextStop Theatre Company Producing Artistic Director
