This comic adaptation of John Buchan’s classic spy thriller has been adapted into a spoof of both the book and the Hitchcock film.  A cast of four play a minimum of 150 roles to tell a story that revolves around an innocent man who learns too much about a dangerous spy ring and is then pursued across Scotland, before returning to London to foil the villain’s dastardly plans.

For The Record:
