The 39 Steps


In 1930s London, the dashing Richard Hannay starts his evening at the theatre and ends it mistakenly accused of murder. Caught in a maze of espionage, near-death escapes, and flirtatious entanglements, our hero careens across Britain in search of a plausible alibi and the true identity of the killer. This two-time Tony- and Drama Desk Award-winning whodunit is both utterly ridiculous and ridiculously entertaining as it lovingly spoofs the iconic cinematic tropes of film noir.
