The 39 Steps

Adapted by Patrick Barlow

From the novel by John Buchan. From the movie of Alfred Hitchcock. Licensed by ITV Global Entertainment Limited. And an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon.

The show where Hitchcock meets hilarious! A faced paced farce based on the 1935
thriller. Adventure and danger are the key words for hero, Richard Hannay, after a
chance encounter with a beautiful spy. He runs from police, and would be assassins
while trying to uncover a plot to steal British military secrets. Part of the genius of this
piece is that entire story is portrayed with only 4 actors. It will leave you wondering,
“How did they do that!?” Director – Sean Frith

Laughter on the 23rd Floor

By Neil Simon

Neil Simon looks behind the scenes of a successful comedy and finds more
comedy! Based on Simon’s experiences as a young writer, the real wackiness of a 1953
TV comedy show, according to Simon, took place in the writers’ room. As the show’s
star battles with network executives about creative content of the show, the quick-witted
writers collaborate and kibitz with one another to keep up. Director – Amy Jackson

Join tom-boy Jo, romantic Meg, sweet Beth, and pretentious Amy for a charmingly good time.
