TheatreWorks’ production of the comic thriller “The 39 Steps” is scheduled to close Sunday at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Adapted by Patrick Barlow from the book by John Buchan and the movie by Alfred Hitchcock, the spoof is filled with chicanery, espionage, dastardly murders and double-crossing secret agents. “The 39 Steps” was a hit on Broadway.

The play follows Richard Hannay, a notorious fugitive who knows too much, who meets breathtaking Pamela on a train. Along the way, a secret agent is murdered, there’s a devious plot that threatens the safety of England and a square-jawed hero races across Great Britain to catch a thief.

Robert Kelley, TheatreWorks founding artistic director, is at the helm, directing a cast featuring company veterans Mark Anderson Phillips, Cassidy Brown, Rebecca Dines and Dan Hiatt.

Performances are scheduled 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $27-$42, with discounts available for students, educators, seniors and members.

For advance tickets and more information, call 463-1960 or visit theatreworks.org.
