Synopsis: The 39 Steps is a comedy thriller that centers on the character Richard Hannay, who is on the run from authorities, as well as the all but unknown organization, The 39 Steps. The journey to unveiling this organization leads him to an array of different characters who don’t always have the best of intentions. This fast-paced show is filled with intrigue, romance, and mystery that is bound to keep you on the edge of your seat.

This includes Annabella who is a spy attempting to bring down The 39 Steps, Pamela who is caught up in Hannay’s adventure, and Margaret who dreams of a life out of the country and in the city.
