The 39 Steps
From the Novel by JOHN BUCHAN
Adapted by PATRICK BARLOW
From an original concept by SIMON CORBLE & NOBBY DIMON
Cassidy Brown*, Jennifer Erdmann*, Mark Farrell*, and Ben Johnson*
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, 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 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash and some good old-fashioned romance!
Center REPertory Company 1601 Civic Drive in Downtown Walnut Creek.
