Tongue-in-cheek noir thrills as four actors deliver hundreds of characters and thousands of laughs

After a record-breaking season at State Theatre Company South Australia, former Queensland Theatre Associate Director Jon Halpin returns to Brisbane to direct an all-Queensland cast including Hugh Parker and Leon Cain.

Scottish author John Buchan’s 1915 novel The Thirty-Nine Steps has spawned multiple film adaptations – most famously Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 version.

Classic film noir melds seamlessly with zany comedy as Hannay clings to trains, dangles from bridges and is harried across the moors by machine-gun fire – all recreated through fiendishly inventive stage wizardry. With just four actors playing a titanic cast of 139 characters, this riotous retro spy caper is performed at breakneck speed with a knowing wink to the audience and a tip of the hat to Alfred Hitchcock and Tony Hancock.

“A dizzy and theatrical game played with wit and versatility.” The Times
