Stevi Playhouse Has Fun with “39 Steps”

In 1935, Alfred Hitchcock directed a British production of a classic spy story, “The 39 Steps.” I have seen it. It’s not bad and has a lot of details that become important as the hero gets more and more entangled in the plot.

But, it also was ripe for spoofing.

And someone finally has done it. The stage play “The 39 Steps” is a fast-moving farce that has a cast of only four actors who must play all the characters. And the Stevensville Playhouse is presenting it for the next three weekends.

Erick M Rasmussen plays the hero Richard Hannay, and Lindsey Zachariasen plays the three women with whom he has major “emotional issues.” The rest of the characters are played by Maria Cole and Mark Joy — they play men, women, children, bad guys and good guys.

The script is full of puns and allusions to titles of other Hitchcock films. It’s a serious spy story played for laughs.

The advance tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for kids 12 and under. At showtime, the tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for kids.

“The 39 Steps” plays Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm May 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 and 19 with matinees on Sundays May 6, 13, and 20. The Stevensville Playhouse is on Main Street in Stevensville. Call (406) 777-2722.
