Queensbury Theatre presents The 39 Steps
Alfred Hitchcock’s classic “wrong man” espionage thriller, The 39 Steps, will be transferred from screen to stage as a farce with uproarious results. Ripe with allusion to other Hitchcock titles, it’s a movie lover’s laugh anthology, tweaking the high-tension genre with wit, energy, and affection.
The 39 Steps features just three actors as 150 different characters, all chasing or abetting our hero Hannay. It’s a madcap romp through gripping melodrama. Directed by George Brock, the production spins its serious story with comedic equipoise and stagecraft.
