"The 39 Steps"

written by Patrick Barlow
directed by Katie and Nicholas Boone

In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she’s a spy.  When he takes her home, she is murdered.  Soon, a mysterious organization called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale!  A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, "The 39 Steps" amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
