The 39 Steps

John Buchan


The 39 Steps is a melodrama adapted from the 1915 novel by John
Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock. the story tells of an
innocent man who learns too much about a dangerous spy ring and
is pursued across Scotland whilst trying to prove his innocence.

This hilarious adaptation calls for the entire play to be performed with
a cast of only four actors. This requires quick costume changes, quick
scene changes and a quick-thinking audience.
