The 39 Steps

Performances through October 8

NextStop Theatre Company
269 Sunset Park Drive
Herndon, VA 20170

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the beginning of NextStop, we are remounting the very first production we ever presented as a professional theater! The 39 Steps is a hysterical comedy based on one of Alfred Hitchcock’s first hit films. It is the thrilling saga of a handsome, yet unassuming gentleman who gets swept up in the high stakes world of international espionage. Not only do four actors play dozens of characters, in this bold new production, our brave cast will be flipping a coin just 5 minutes before each performance to see who plays which role! Every night will be a completely new adventure, featuring daring escapes, speeding trains, plane crashes, and plenty of mistaken identities, you won’t want to miss this one of a kind production of The 39 Steps!
