In The 39 Steps, Richard Hannay resolves to race cross-country in an attempt to solve a crime that is hauntingly mysterious. With four adroit actors moving at a pace that would tax the healthiest of athletes, the comedy-mystery offers audiences tense and powerful chases, amazingly silly and amusing detours, and a wealth of narrow escapes all of which stretch across the English countryside. If you love Alfred Hitchcock, classic movies, witty, crazy mysteries, and all-out theatrical fun, then you must see The 39 Steps.
