Pick of the Day: The 39 Steps

Adapted from the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock movie of the same name, this comedy-thriller sees a man in London who is framed for a spy’s murder try desperately to prove his innocence.

It opens at Globe Theatre tonight, and runs until Feb. 12. I believe one of our contributors is going to attend the play and review it for Dog Blog, so keep an eye out for that.

To give you a sense of what the play’s about, here’s the trailer for the original Hitchcock movie. For ticket information, call the Globe at 525-6400.

  1. I would see this play on the strength on the directing alone. In the 1970s, Marti Maraden was one of my favourite actors at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival.

  2. p.s. “Comedy-thriller” is putting it mildly, Greg. Whereas the Hitchcock film was a serious attempt at suspense, the stage play is an outright farce. Ask around.
