last summer my mother was supposed to go see a play with a seniors group she belongs to, about three weeks before the performance she fell (not badly hurt but bruised (including tailbone))
there was no way she could sit on a bus or in the theatre, she tried to give the ticket away to a few folks but nobody would take it (trip, visit to Uncle Tom's Museum, shopping and play in the Town of Petrolia, and buffet dinner at a golf course on the way home)
she asked if i'd go, and i thought, why not, the play was fantastic, perhaps the most fun i've had in a long time
The 39 Steps
The play's concept calls for the entirety of the 1935 adventure film The 39 Steps to be performed nearly verbatim onstage, but with a cast of four. One actor plays the hero, Richard Hannay, an actress plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and two other actors play every other character in the show: heroes, villains, men, women, children and even the occasional inanimate object. This often requires lightning fast quick changes and occasionally for them to play multiple characters at once. Thus the film's serious spy story is played mainly for laughs, and the script is full of allusions to (and puns on the titles of) other Alfred Hitchcock films, including Rear Window, Psycho and North by Northwest.
at one point the two men who portray every other character in the play, at one point they portray landscape, including a bog, thorn bushes and craggy mountain sides, very entertaining
