“The 39 Steps” at Woodbridge Middle School

A hilarious take on a Hitchcock thriller takes the stage at Woodbridge Middle School when Dragonfly Multicultural Arts Center presents the play The 39 Steps May 5, 6, and 7. This fast-paced comedy, adapted by Patrick Barlow from the 1935 Hitchcock film, was a six-time Tony nominee on Broadway and is a madcap spy story performed by a small, but talented, cast.

> The 39 Steps tells the story of a bored single man who goes out one night to see a show and finds himself immersed in a dangerous spy caper.

Pursued by gun-toting henchmen, he sets off on a journey to discover the secret of “the 39 steps,” and, along the way, meets sociable salesmen, cranky crofters, and a peculiar professor.

He escapes from a train, evades machine-gun-firing airplanes, and ends up confronting the bad guys in–where else?–a theater.

A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure.
