The 39 Steps
The 39 Steps is a melodrama adapted from the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock and rewritten by Patrick Barlow in 2005.
Thursday 5 March to Saturday 7 March 2015
The story is a classic portrayal of one man's flight from wrong accusation through a series of improbable adventures as he is pursued by the authorities. Romance comes from him being handcuffed to a woman, with whom he ultimately falls in love. Finally, the true villains are exposed and our hero is vindicated.
