Interpretive planning, research, and writing

A mystery woman with a foreign accent. A dead body falling into the hero’s lap. An innocent man accused of...murder. A mad race across Scottish moors...chased by a fog...handcuffed to a beautiful woman...with the fate of Western civilization in the balance. (big pause) Gosh.
So begins the commercial for Alfred Hitchock’s The 39 Steps, one of the commercials we're creating for Portland Center Stage this season.
