Mike Leopold - The 39 Steps
Mike Leopold is the Designer for The 39 Steps at Barn Theatre, Cirencester.
A cast of four deftly takes on a Hitchcock classic, The 39 Steps, in this wonderfully inventive comic- thriller parody adaptation of John Buchan’s 1915 novel.
The 39 Steps follows the incredible adventures of our handsome hero Richard Hannay, complete with stiff-upper-lip and British gung-ho spirit as he encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and devastatingly beautiful women. The show is a frantic farce, jampacked with slapstick humour, a barrage of accents and hat-swaps culminating in chaos and calamity.
This wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy thriller features four fearless actors, playing 139 roles in 100 minutes of fast-paced fun, thrilling action and a colossal number of costume changes.
