This ingenious comic stage adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock's thriller The 39 Steps turns a cast of four into more than 100 zany characters (in 100 minutes) with a mix of Hitchcockian masterpiece, juicy spy novel and a touch of Monty Python. The winner of two Tony and Drama Desk Awards, The 39 Steps is a fast-paced and funny whodunit that's brimming with action and romance. Accused of a murder he didn't commit, Richard Hannay flees from the authorities and encounters a string of hair-raising adventures -- as well as an unlikely love connection. Gasp and guffaw as four talented actors re-enact the entire film (including every train chase, plane crash and murder), gleefully portraying the many spies, villains and other intriguing characters that inhabit this action-packed world.

The Lieutenant of Inishmore
By Martin McDonagh
Directed By Jon Kretzu
Filled with as much laughter as gore, this is a shockingly funny black comedy from one of today’s hottest Irish playwrights about blood, guts and a little black cat named Wee Thomas. This Monty Python-esque farce shows us to what extremes a man will go when his cat is killed. The fact that this man is an insane and ruthless Irish terrorist who thinks the IRA is “too soft” only makes the play funnier and more daring. __
The Lieutenant of Inishmore__ was nominated for the 2006 Tony Award for Best Play. Artists Rep first introduced the playwright to Portland audiences in 2000 with their production of __The Beauty Queen of Leenane. __
