To celebrate Alfred Hitchcock’s classic spy thriller live on the Adelaide stage this December we're hosting an extra special screening of the original 1959 film with a Q&A featuring stage production star Amber McMahon and Producer Liza McLean. 

Liza McLean has worked in the entertainment industry in Australia and overseas for the past twenty years, working for and collaborating with extraordinary Producers and some of worlds’ finest actors, singers and performers. Recently she was appointed the Executive Producer for the 2013 Helpmann Awards presented by Live Performances Australia.

Amber MacMahon returns to the role of Eve Kendall for the Brisbane and Adelaide productions of North By Northwest. Amber trained at Flinders University Drama Centre and was a recipient of the Adele Koh Scholarship to study at the Stella Adler Company & SITI Company in New York and appeared in theatrical and film productions all around the globe.

About the Film

Director: Alfred Hitchcock
Actors: James Mason, Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint
Cary Grant gives one of his greatest performances as womanizing executive Roger Thornhill, whose cozy life of afternoon cocktails is turned upside down when he’s mistaken by suave villain James Mason and his murderous crony, Martin Landau, for an elusive government operative. Eva Marie Saint co-stars as Mason’s elegant mistress, with the wonderful Jesse Royce Landis as Grant’s fur-clad society mum.
