The play is written by Kristoffer Diaz, and directed by Shone Osterhout.

Director Krista Schwarting and Actor Jenson Seifert came by to talk about two things - to reinforce that Cyrano's has a new location, and a play running through November 19th.  The location is 3800 Debarr Road, with the nearest major intersection of Debarr and Bragaw.   

The play, The 39 Steps, is a comic adaptation of a classic film from the 1930s and based loosely on a 1915 era classic book.  

Schwarting says the treatment given by playwright Patrick Barlow not only breathes new life into the 100-year old story, but also converts it into a comedy.
