THE 39 STEPS adapted by Patrick Barlow a reimagining of Alfred Hitchcock’s famous film of the same title, is a theatrical tour-de-force punctuated by over-the-top Monty Python-ish melodrama. Set in 1930s England and Scotland, the play, performed by only four actors, tells the story of a dapper London man (Richard Hannay) who tries to prevent a top-secret agent from stealing classified air-defense information. After the agent’s sudden inexplicable murder, our hero Richard remains the only suspect and is forced to go on the run with an attractive and suave companion in attempts to clear his name. The two main characters, Richard Hannay (as played by Grayson Owen) and Pamela (as played by Ann Turiano; who also appears as Annabella Schmidt & Margaret), dash across London and Scotland meeting a myriad of characters performed by two clowns (as played by: Steven Shriner and Holly E. Gibbs) who often change persona mid-scene or mid-sentence. This style of slapstick visible quick-change is a nod to Charles Ludlam's The Mystery of Irma Vep. Grayson Owen, playing Richard Hannay, is the only performer who remains in a solo character through the two-act fast-paced whodunit designed for anyone who loves the magic of theatre.
