Synopsis:
Patrick Barlow's comical adaptation of The 39 Steps is a fast-paced, often hilariously irreverent re-creation of Alfred Hitchcock's classic mystery thriller film of 1935. Four actors portray some 150 roles. Our leading man, Richard Hannay, meets a mysterious woman at a London music hall. After witnessing her murder, he becomes entangled in solving the crime, proving his innocence, and breaking a spy ring that seems to be attached to the whole affair. All roles require excellent comic timing.
Roles:
Richard Hannay (Lead): Male, 29-42
a dashing Canadian leading man (a la original star Robert Donat) entangled in the adventure of a lifetime, as he becomes a fugitive on the run to save his own life and foil the spy ring that is trying to silence him. British dialect required.
ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities
Annabella Schmidt/Margaret/Pamela (Lead): Female, 22-35
seeking a versatile actress to play three roles a la a young leading lady from the black-and-white films of the 1930s; Annabella is a mysterious alluring German spy; Margaret is young, shy, sheltered, very pretty British wife of an older country farmer; Pamela is our spunky, independent, and very beautiful young British heroine.
ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities
Clown 1 & Clown 2 (Supporting): Male, 20-50
seeking two character males to share in playing some 150 other roles in the piece, must be extremely versatile, creative, and playful actors with excellent verbal and physical comic timing and a great sense of the genre of the film, must be adept with multiple European dialects.
ETHNICITY: All Ethnicities
Non-Equity, no pay.
