EASLEY — The 39 Steps, which has been described as “Monty Python meets Alfred Hitchcock,” is coming to Easley’s Foothills Playhouse Feb. 8.
The show runs through Feb. 17, with performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.
This juicy spy story is a fast-paced whodunit with an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance. The show has 150ish characters played by just four actors, who make lightning-fast costume and character changes right before your eyes, at times on a speeding train. An award-winning, long-running Broadway play, The 39 Steps is a non-stop laugh fest adapted from the novel by John Buchan and the film by Alfred Hitchcock. The play is written by Patrick Barlow.
The show’s director, Anna DeVault, promises “an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure, starring four of the Playhouse’s best veteran actors: Maurice Reed, Steve Schultz, Erin Schultz and Owen Robertson.” DeVault and her cast play The 39 Steps for laughs all the way.
