The Human Race Theatre Company will present the local premiere of Patrick Barlow’s Tony Award-winning comedic thriller The 39 Steps Oct. 21-Nov. 7 at the Loft Theatre, 126 N. Main St. This spoof of the 1935 Alfred Hitchcock film of the same name and the overall Hitchcock brand will be directed by Joe Deer, who respectively staged marvelous productions of Lend Me A Tenor and The Light in the Piazza last season for the Human Race and Wright State University.
