A side-splitting comedy as Alfred Hitchcock meets mayhem. Based on the 1939 Hitchcock thriller, just four actors play more than 100 characters in the heart racing adventures of a handsome hero chased by international spies. It’s a rip-roaring night out and has already been seen by over three million people in more than 60 countries.
This fast, frothy exercise is throwaway theatre at its finest. 39 Steps isn’t using the Hitchcock film as a target for satire but as an accomplice. It uses the cinematic template to celebrate the art of instant illusion-making that is theatre.
The 39 Steps will play 2 May-20 June at Brisbane Arts Theatre. Tickets are available via www.artstheatre.com.au or call (07) 3369 2344
