The 39 Steps

Adapted by Patrick Barlow
From the movie by Alfred Hitchcock and the novel by John Buchan

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 perform139 roles in 100 minutes at breakneck hilarity. It’s Hitchcock at top speed. After sell-out performances of Sense and Sensibility in 2018, State Theatre Company of South Australia returns to Geelong with a stellar cast reprised from its hit 2016 production of The 39 Steps.

Duration: 2 hours, including interval

Warnings: Strobe lighting, haze effects, smoke, loud noises
