THE 39 STEPS
The State Theatre Company of South Australia
Written By: Adapted by Patrick Barlow
From the movie by Alfred Hitchcock and the novel by John Buchan
From an Original Concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon
Directed By: Jon Halpin
After a sell-out season in 2016, State Theatre Company is bringing back The 39 Steps for an extremely limited return season, complete with the stellar original cast.
Pulled into a web of intrigue and deceit, Richard Hannay must evade shadowy organisations and femme fatales, corrupt constables and frisky farmers’ wives. Twisted into knots by skullduggery and suspicion, Hannay must solve the mystery of the 39 steps and save the motherland before it is too late.
Equal parts farce, clowning masterclass and heart-stopping noir, strap yourself in as four actors perform 139 roles in 100 minutes at breakneck hilarity. It’s Hitchcock at top speed.
If you missed the original season, get in fast. This will be your last chance to see one of the hottest shows to hit Adelaide in years.
