ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Duke City Repertory has a new production hitting their stage: “The 39 Steps”. In this Hitchcock spoof, Richard Hannay’s life is boring, dull, and rather tedious until he meets a beautiful woman. But when she winds up mysteriously murdered, Hannay finds himself on a cross-continent run for his life, encountering underwear salesmen, violent plane crashes, foreign spies, and the man with a missing finger.
“The 39 Steps” is a hilarious story jam-packed with adventure, romance, over 150 characters played by a cast of four Albuquerque actors. This two-time Tony and Drama Desk award-winning play is a perfect fit for Duke City Rep.
Duke City Rep is not only looking forward to bringing laughter to their audiences this May, but food on the tables of those who need it most. The company is honored to partner with Road Runner Food Bank of New Mexico and Farm & Table to hold a canned food drive during the three-week run of the show. Patrons can bring non-perishable goods for the drive when they go to any performance of “The 39 Steps”, and every Friday is a special “Pay What You Can(ned) Food Drive.” On these days, patrons who bring at least 4 food items will be given a pay-what-you-can discount. Any patron who donates items throughout the production will be entered into a raffle drawing for a stellar “Dinner & Show” package, which includes dinner for two at Farm & Table and two tickets to DCRT’s next production.
