Playwright Joe Landry took three Alfred Hitchcock films and fashioned the stories into a 1940s-style radio broadcast complete with a period set, vintage commercials, jingles, sound effects, and musical underscore. Everything comes to life by Company actors, singers, musicians, and stage crews.
It wouldn’t be Hitchcock if it weren’t brimming with spies, romance, murder, and suspense. Company’s production checks off every box.
The Lodger centers around a turn of the century London couple who rent their spare room to mysterious stranger. Is he The Avenger, a serial killer targeting young blonde women? Is their daughter the next victim?
In Sabotage, a woman discovers that her husband is a terrorist agent. Suddenly, she and her brother find themselves caught up in international espionage. Someone—or someones—will die. Who?
Hitchcock’s classic The 39 Steps is about an ordinary man who manages to get involved in a plot to steal military secrets, is accused of murder, flees London, falls in love, and tries to clear his name. Suffice to say there are complications.
