Adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock, this melodrama is an original concept and production of a four-actor version of the story by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon. Patrick Barlow rewrote the adaptation in 2005. The entirety of the adventure is performed with a cast of four. One actor plays the hero, another plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and two others play the other characters. The film’s serious spy story is played mainly for laughs, and the script is full of allusions to other well-known Alfred Hitchcock films.
