What do you get when you mix Hitchcock, a juicy spy novel and a dash of Monty Python? You get the unmissable comedy, The 39 Steps. When a London civilian gets caught up in a spy game, he is forced to leave the life he knows to figure out where the danger lies. Will he save Britain from a den of devious spies? Come find out! This cast of 10 actors plays around 30 different characters in this fast-paced tale of an ordinary man on an extraordinary adventure. The 39 Steps opens this Friday and plays this weekend and next! Tickets available at the door or on pndrama.org.
