"Theatre at its finest!... Absurdly enjoyable! This gleefully theatrical riff on Hitchcock's film is fast and frothy,
performed by a cast of four that seems like a cast of thousands."- The New York Times

WINNER! 2007 LAURENCE OLIVIER AWARD - Best New Comedy
Follow the incredible adventures of our handsome hero Richard Hannay, complete with stiff-upper-lip, British gung-ho and pencil moustache as he encounters dastardly murders, double-crossing secret agents, and, of course, devastatingly beautiful women. Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This wonderfully inventive and gripping comedy thriller and award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!

Book Ends
A Kiwi Comedy by
Roger Hall
Directed by Susanne Dell
Season November 11th  - December 2nd,  8.00 PM
matinees November 12th & 19th,  2.00 PM

Every Tuesday, the Cabin Fever Club meet for coffee at Devonport’s Sour Dough Café. They are literary types -- cantankerous, opinionated, insecure and often amusing. What binds them together is their mutual love of books. But with the unstoppable advance of technology putting their livelihoods under threat, will it mean the end of books? A play with shelf-loads of laughs.

By arrangement with Playmarket.

Bookings are strongly advised.

Titirangi Theatre Presents
Three Dasy of Rain
By Richard Greenberg
Directed by Duncan Milne
Season: November 21st - December 2nd

This witty and intelligent play was nominated for a Pulitzer. It follows Walker and his sister Nan, children of a famous architect, as they wait for the reading of his will. They are joined by Pip, the son of the architect's business partner. As they wait, and as the will is disclosed, they bicker about who did what, and why.
In the second half the same three actors play their own parents thirty five years earlier, at the same age and in the same place, and we find out what really happened.

Company Theatre Presents
