North by Northwest
Melbourne Theatre Company presents
North by Northwest

1 Jun 2015 to 20 Jun 2015

Every twist, every thrill, every hairbreadth escape from Alfred Hitchcock’s supreme comedy of suspense is retained for this stunning new stage adaptation from director Simon Phillips and writer Carolyn Burns.

Roger O. Thornhill is a suave and successful advertising executive, abducted by thugs who insist he is a man called George Kaplan. There’s obviously been a mix up. When they don’t believe him, that’s infuriating. When they try to kill him, that’s frightening. And when they pin a murder on him, that’s time to run!

From New York to North Dakota, Thornhill is chased by spies, Feds, crop-dusting planes and the inevitable cool blonde. Years before the James Bond films there was North by Northwest – a lightning paced thriller that mixed glamour with espionage for a truly irresistible cocktail.

And now, in an extraordinary collaboration between MTC, Kay + McLean Productions and Warner Bros. Theater Ventures, Melbourne audiences can enjoy the World Premiere of this unmissable theatrical spectacular, where the magic of film and theatre collide live on stage.
