Ghent Play­house opens new sea­son with ‘The 39 Steps’

WHAT: Play, “The 39 Steps” WHEN: From Oct. 7 to 23, with per­for­mances Fri­days and Satur­days at 8 p.m. and Sun­days at 2 p.m. WHERE: The Ghent Play­house, 6 Town Hall Place, Ghent

DE­TAILS: The Ghent Play­house opens its 42nd sea­son with a pro­duc­tion of “The 39 Steps.” This fast-paced melo­drama is based on the novel by John Buchan and the 1935 movie by Al­fred Hitch­cock. Mix a Hitch­cock mas­ter­piece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a who­dunit for any­one who loves the magic of the­ater. A man with a bor­ing life meets a mys­te­ri­ous woman with a thick ac­cent who tells him she is a spy. When he takes her home, she is mur­dered. Soon, a mys­te­ri­ous or­ga­ni­za­tion called “The 39 Steps” is hot on the man’s trail in a na­tion­wide man­hunt that cli­maxes in a death-de­fy­ing fi­nale. Tick­ets are $20, $17 for play­house mem­bers and $10 for stu­dents with ID.
