Kelowna Actors Studio continues their 10th season with The 39 Steps; Adapted by Patrick Barlow, from the novel by John Buchan, from the movie of Alfred Hitchcock.
Loaded with references to famous Hitchcock films, plus hilarious slapstick and a gripping spy plot, The 39 Steps is a delight for film-buffs, theatre-goers and anyone ready to laugh! You truly can't miss this 2-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-‐winning whodunit.
Randy Leslie, Artistic Managing Director teams up with Kelowna Actors Studios impeccable cast of just four to create a stellar interpretation of this Hitchcock masterpiece with an on stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old fashioned romance!
In The 39 Steps, Richard Hannay—a man with a boring life—finds himself on an extraordinary and entertaining adventure when a quickly acquainted spy is killed by assassins with a butter knife. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt all over Scotland, England, in and around London - on trains and in out of the way manors, that climaxes in a death-defying finale!
A fast-paced, riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of riotous pleasure!
At the play's centre are Doug Brown as the dashing investigator Richard Hannay (Noises Off, Streetcar Named Desire) and Michelle Hussey (Streetcar, Brighton Beach Memoirs) as the beautiful, albeit mysterious leading lady.
Leslie says, “It's sort of the fun of Noises Off and Spamalot combined with an homage to the film noir that Alfred Hitchcock made famous. The challenge of all the roles and all the locations and the necessity of the precise comic timing that farces require intrigue and excite me artistically... plus it is going to be a laugh riot"
