The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, an open amatuer theatre community based in Hyderabad, is organising The 39 Steps on 19th April at Lamakaan. The 39 Steps has four actors playing 40 roles over one and a half hours! In an absolute masterpiece of visual humour and comic timing, the play sees the entire film ‘The 39 Steps‘ performed nearly verbatim onstage. The film’s serious spy story is played mainly for laughs, and the script is full of allusions to other Hitchcock films, including Rear Window and Psycho. This is perhaps the ultimate spoof espionage thriller!
Date: April 19, 2014
Time: 7 PM
Venue: In lane adjacent to C Bay, Opp. GVK One, Road No. 1, Banjara Hills
For tickets call 9866174405
The play will also be staged on 20th April at Lamakaan at 7.30 PM.
