(Action, Drama and Comedy)

This spy-thriller, now a break-neck drama-comedy, The 39 Steps has its Coast premiere at the Chorale Theatre at Piringa Street, Wurtulla, opening Wednesday, 14th May.  Following a hugely successful 28 day season at the Court Theatre in Chistchurch, NZ, this will be only the second production of this brilliant adaptation. Currently there is a different adaptation of 39 steps running in Melbourne. The exciting thriller has also spawned three feature films, the best known by Alfred Hitchcock. The mark of a rattling good yarn!

Grant Marks, the hapless Richard Hannay, is pursued across the length and breadth of England and Scotland. Other players are Julie Marks, Jodie Collie and Errol Morrison, who bring to life a further 30-plus characters.

Director, Solitaire Marks, says "We've created an express-train, a battleship, a plane and dozens of other amazing and exciting visuals on the pocket-handkerchief sized stage, which is only just six metres wide.  With Gordon Leeder's sets and Merryl Terrey's costuming, this will be a very special production".

Set in 1914 just prior to the outbreak of WW1, Hannay is in possession of vital information relating to the outbreak of the war. He is being pursued by both the Germans and the British Police Force. Ross Gumbley, the acclaimed New Zealand playwright, has meshed the drama of the story with understated British humour. Coupled with a rich variety of characters this adaptation is non stop action.
