Manitoba Theatre Centre presents The 39 Steps at The John Hirsch Theatre Mainstage from April 20th through May 14th. Tickets range from $35 to $70 depending on age, date and seat section.

Here is an excerpt from the MTC website:

A spy enlists Richard Hannay to help spoil a German plot to murder the Greek premier and steal Britain’s plans for the approaching war. When the spy is killed, Hannay becomes the prime suspect and must run for his life. As he searches for a way to prevent the assassination, our hapless protagonist finds himself embroiled in a high-speed chase while dodging police, charming women and red herrings.

A madcap thriller with four actors juggling 150 roles, this hilarious homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film is filled with adventure, an inventive use of props and murderous mayhem that you won’t want to miss!
