University Players presents THE 39 STEPS

Saturday, November 25, 2017 - 20:00

THE 39 STEPS adapted by Patrick Barlow


Hilarious Whodunit Comedy

A man bored with life meets a beautiful and mysterious spy. Soon, a secret organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with Monty Python fun and you have a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This 2-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 100 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), speeding trains, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!

“Rollicking Fun! Hugely Entertaining!” – Sunday Times

“Theatre at its finest!.. Absurdly enjoyable! This gleefully theatrical riff on Hitchcock's film is fast and frothy, performed by a cast of four that seems like a cast of thousands."- The New York Times
