One of the last shows to be staged in Australia before the COVID 19 pandemic hit, The 39 Steps, a Comedy, Adapted by Patrick Barlow, from the novel by John Buchan and the movie of Alfred Hitchcock. 4 Actors take on the mammoth task of portraying over 150 characters in 2 acts. An entire heist movie on stage complete with murders, shootings, train chases, plane crashes, trilbied heavies in fast cars, villains with little fingers missing, drama, spoof, satire and a train ride you'll never forget. But in amongst the whirlwind of action is a love story between a man & a woman who have never loved anyone,  who - through all the adventure & hanging from bridges & clinging to trains & escaping from villains - discover the beating of their own true hearts.
