Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python
and you have The 39 Steps. When a man with a boring life takes a woman with a thick accent 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!
