Just saw the funniest play the other night. It was a version of Alfred Hitchcock's 39 Steps. There were only 4 actors playing a multitude of parts. That's where some of the humor comes in - sometimes a rack with a suit on it would play a part. Plus pretending they were on a train with minimal props - just outrageous. I don't know where they might play next but check it out if you can. Perhaps it's touring the country.
