The Langham Court Theatre puts a hilarious spin on a classic mystery as it takes on a farcical adaptation of The 39 Steps, bringing to stage more than 100 roles played by four actors.

This wild adaptation from the novel by John Buchan and the movie by Alfred Hitchcock brims with references to other classic Hitchcock headliners such as Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest, allowing for a maximum amount of laughs during its run until March 23.

During the show, the audience witnesses actors Alan Penty, Karen Brelsford, Nick Sepi and Toshik Bukowiecki play everything from hairy-legged cross-dressers to overly mysterious film-noir women – sometimes within seconds of each other.

Directed by Keith Digby and Cynthia Pronick, the set was designed by Bill Adams, his finalé as head scenic carpenter after 15 years.

Tickets are $21 for adults, $19 for students/seniors and are available at langhamtheatre.ca.
