The 39 Steps is adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock. The original concept was of a four-actor version of the story.  That adaption was by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon. 

Keith Weiss

The four person ensemble had one actor playing the hero, Richard Hannay, an actress (or sometimes actor) plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and two other actors play every other character in the show: heroes, villains, men, women, children and even the occasional inanimate object. This often requires lightning-fast quick-changes and occasionally for them to play multiple characters at once.
