The 39 Steps
adapted by Patrick Barlow from the novel by John Buchan and the movie by Alfred Hitchcock

The Crafton-Preyer Theatre

The 39 Steps is a fast-paced, action-packed farcical adaptation of John Buchan's novel and the Alfred Hitchcock film. Set in the mid-1930s in the United Kingdom, the action centers around a man who, while at a London theatre, finds himself holding a frightened woman who talks him into taking her back to his flat. She tells him she is a spy being chased by assassins out to kill her and claims to have uncovered a plot to steal vital British military secrets—a plot implemented by the head of an espionage organization called “The 39 Steps.” From this mysterious beginning is unleashed a frenetic farce that careens from location to location, combining mishaps, mistaken identities and tongue-in-cheek references to everything we like about murder mysteries and film noir. Kansas City Director Alex Espy returns as the guest director of this 2007 Olivier Award and 2008 Drama Desk Award-winning play.
