The Downsview Players in The 39 Steps, May 18-20

Join the Downsview Players in SE19 this May 18, 19 and 20 for The 39 Steps – a comedy spy thriller!

Richard Hannay is on the run and racing against time to save the country! His only hindrance is a cast of outrageous characters with implausible accents… oh, and a moving train, a biplane attack and a perilous drop from the Forth Bridge.

This comedy spy thriller is an affectionate parody of Hitchcock’s classic film, and is crammed with inventive stagecraft, thrilling chases, daring escapades — and a dash of old-fashioned romance. Suitable for ages 8-108.

Be thrilled, be intrigued, be on the edge of your seat!
