Kingsport’s State Theatre Company opens its second production this weekend with The 39 Steps, a play adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film.

The production opened last night at Taylored Venue & Events located in downtown Kingsport. It runs March 16 – April 2, with $15 tickets available at the door or at STC’s website here. The show is family friendly, and a cash bar will be open every night serving classic cocktails to fit with the show’s 1930s feel.

The play itself is a spy thriller played for laughs. Only four actors–three men, one woman–play over 100 characters over its course, with lightning-quick changes between them and oftentimes playing more than one character per scene. An uproarious comedy that has been performed and adored the world over, this is not a show to miss.
