Stratford Playhouse Presents Hitchcock’s 39 Steps

Fresh off the heels of the annual Tommy Tunes Awards night celebration, Stratford Playhouse finishes its season with 39 Steps,  a melodrama adapted from the Alfred Hitchcock film of the same name. The play’s concept calls for the entirety of the show to be performed with only a cast of four players.

One actor, Jack Goss, plays the hero Richard Hannay, while Keeley Flynn plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements. The remaining two actors, Cameron Munoz and Dustin Nichols, play every other character in the show from heroes to villains, to men, women and children, and sometimes even inanimate objects.  This requires lightning fast costume changes, and occasionally several characters being played at once.

As a result, the spy story is mainly played for laughs, with allusions to many other Alfred Hitchcock films in the process. Directed by Christian Holmes, the show is sure tickle your funny bone.

Tickets are $16 in advance. Performances will be at 7:30 pm daily April 30-May 2, as well as May 8-9, with a matinee on May 9 at 2:30 p.m.

Purchase tickets for 39 Steps online or in person at the Stratford Box Office. For more information or to buy tickets, go to or call 713-251-3449.
