"Bake Off" of THE 39 STEPS Burlington Vermont


Theatre "Bake Off" of THE 39 STEPS

Each cast has been rehearsing separately and in secret... (I suppose that is the most appropriate approach to this play when you think about it). I will know more next week when we come together and see what everyone has been cooking up.

In the meantime, here are a few little known facts about The 39 STEPS:

  • The title of the original novel The 39 Steps comes from the author John Buchan's daughter, who at the age of six learned to count by climbing up and down their stairs exclaiming, "there are 39 steps!"

  • Four major film versions of The 39 Steps have been created but the most popular is Alfred Hitchcock's version. Hitchcock's version also ranks as the 21st greatest British movie of all time by the British Film Institute.

  • There are over ten allusions to other Hitchcock films in this stage adaptation of The 39 Steps.

  • John Buchan was knighted and his official title became First Baron Tweedsmuir of Elsfield, Oxfordshire. Talk about a mouthful.
