A beautiful spy is murdered and Richard Hannay must stay one step ahead of the killers, the police, and a jealous husband in a quest to prove his innocence.

An adaptation of an adaptation, this two-time Tony Award-winning favourite returns to Vertigo Theatre with a talented cast of four playing over 150 zany characters.

“When I pitched the play to Vertigo’s board and staff, I said it was because the play was often cited as an all-time favourite by many of our most loyal patrons. I talked about how Vertigo was one of the first companies in Canada to produce the play, and how despite it being a risky show for Vertigo at the time due to its high concept staging, it played to sold-out house,” says Vertigo Theatre Artistic Director Craig Hall, in a statement. “Want to know a secret? I programmed The 39 Steps mostly because I’ve never had a chance to see it.”

Loaded with nonstop laughs and directed by Ron Jenkins, The 39 Steps stars Tyrell Crews, Anna Cummer, Andy Curtis, and Ron Pederson. Don’t miss your chance to see this crowd favourite.

The 39 Steps runs November 11 to December 16, 2017 at The Playhouse at Vertigo Theatre (115 9th Ave. SE).
