The 39 Steps (play)
The 39 Steps is an award-winning semi-comic stage melodrama adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock.
The play involves four actors performing the a version of Hitchcock's film, which requires the actors to make quick character changes and to occasionally play multiple characters at once.
The original version of the play was written by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon for four actors, and was first performed in 1995.
In 2005, Patrick Barlow rewrote the script, keeping most of the original concepts, but borrowing more heavily from the Hitchcock film. Barlow's re-adapation transferred to London's West End in August 2006 and has since been performed throughout the world.
