2012-13 Season

The 39 Steps

by Patrick Barlow

The Tony Award winning comedy thriller THE 39 STEPS comes to Farmers Alley Theatre fresh off its long runs on Broadway and the West End! Based on the Alfred Hitchcock film of the same name, this fast-paced murder/mystery is filled with ingenuity, zaniness and enough costume changes to fill a Miss America pageant. Imagine an intriguing spy story in the fashion of Monty Python where four actors play over 150 characters! THE 39 STEPS also packs in allusions and references to the great Hitchcock classics of the past like VertigoRear Window, and North By Northwest. Winner of the 2008 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience, THE 39 STEPS is one night at the theatre you won’t soon forget.
