The 39 Steps @ Criterion Theatre (until Feb 2012)


In case you’re looking to enjoy theatre some time soon, we thought we’d tell you about a great comedy called The 39 Steps.

Based on the book and the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film, The 39 Steps follows Richard Hannay, a bored London gentleman whose life suddenly becomes more interesting when a woman is murdered in his apartment.

Who is she? Why was she murdered? And what are the mysterious 39 Steps?

Framed for her murder, Hannay flees London for Scotland on a mission to find out the answers to these and other questions. Along the way he comes across  unusual and mysterious characters and is accompanied by Pamela, who finds herself handcuffed to Hannay.

This is a really funny comedy with lots of cool 1930s costumes and just four cast members playing a massive 150 roles between them! Definitely worth seeing just how they do that for yourself!
