While the show is the actual film on stage, it has more in common with
Monty Python, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and The Marx Brothers than it
does with either Hitchcock’s classic film or John Buchan’s original novel
(published in September 1915). The play is written for four actors: one
plays the role of Richard Hannay; one woman plays the three ladies with
whom Hannay is romantically involved during this two-hour chase through
Scotland and southern England; and two actors, male or female, play Clown 1
and Clown 2 who appear as approximately 125 characters between them. Think
“The Ministry of Silly Walks” meets “The Bourne Identity”.

The play actually follows the movie story scene by scene and will involve a
suggested set (there are 33 scenes), a ton of sound, a ton of costume
accessories, a chase on the outside of a moving train that goes through
tunnels, all the double-triple-and-quadruple takes we can cram into it,
murder, mayhem, a trillion laughs and all kinds of entertaining
this-and-that. The four actors are all on stage for nearly the entire
two-act extravaganza. And the dialogue is terrific!

It is an exercise that tests the limits of pure theatre and pure
