Spies, murder and mayhem … oh my!
Richard Hannay, a suspected murderer, is caught in a web of international intrigue and suspense in this rollicking, edge-or-your-seat thriller made famous by the classic Hitchcock film. Handcuffed to a beautiful woman convinced of his guilt, the accidental action hero must stay one step ahead of Scotland Yard to prove his innocence and stop a lethal ring of spies. Lives hang in the balance, often literally, in this theatrical mission-quite-impossible, packed with hilarious film noire allusions. The entire escapade is performed by four actors, switching characters at lightning speed for maximum spoof effect.
