Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This two-time TONY and DRAMA DESK Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of four), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!
In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
"Actually, I will take off my stocking." (L to R: Pamela, played by Jane Landes, and Richard Hannay, played by DJ Holcombe.
Hitchcock was reportedly interested in the "drama" of being handcuffed. He is reported to have "lost the key" after handcuffing stars Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll together in the film version of "The 39 Steps."
The newly reopened Temperance House, a historic inn in the heart of Newtown, is offering a special $25 pre-show prix fixe dinner menu during the run of The 39 Steps. And for each dinner purchased, they will generously donate $2 to Newtown Arts Company's Scholarship Fund. Since its founding in 1983, the company has granted over $118,000 to area students pursuing higher education in the performing or fine arts.
So why not support a worthy cause while you enjoy a delectable meal at a Newtown landmark? The Temperance House is located at 5 S. State Street, Newtown, PA 18940. Make your reservation today!
