What are the 39 Steps??

Bored with his aimless life, Richard Hannay decides to go to the theatre. While there he meets a mysterious woman named Annabella Schmidt who turns out to be a secret agent trying to save England from a mysterious foreign power. When she is murdered in his apartment, he finds himself accused and escapes to Scotland in hopes of completing her mission. On the train he meets two salesmen and a beautiful blonde named Pamela, then barely escapes the police. As they chase him across the moors, he is assisted by a farmer’s wife, reconnected with the same icy blond, hidden in an out of the way hotel, and finally forced to outsmart a team of spies in order to save England.

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theater! WCLOC closes its season with this uproarious comedy, opening on June 1st. .. or does it??
