The 39 Steps

full-length noir spoof

TASIS The American International School in England

November 2017

"A hilarious Hitchcock-inspired humdinger of a show with over 150 characters, THE 39 STEPS, was performed and produced by 20 rather spiffing Upper School students. The place? London. The year? 1935. The man? Richard Hannay, wearer of tweed and smoker of gentlemen's pipes. The woman? Well, that's the problem really, has been for quite a while in fact, despite Richard presenting rather well, sporting a beautifully crafted pencil moustache, deep brown eyes and an utterly charming personality. Finding love's hard enough, let alone when you're trying to save the country and avoid a mysterious villain who is missing part of his little finger..."

Show poster. A man in a 1930s suit and trenchcoat looks shocked. Above him, a a hatted head is ominously silhouetted against window blinds. Shows November 2-3, 7pm.
