Deathtrap by Ira Levin

Event Date: Wed 28th - Sat 31 July 2021

Sidney Bruhl, a previously successful playwright, has had a series of box office flops and is having trouble writing. He receives a play from a student of his, Clifford, and tells his wife the play is a certain hit and that he may have to kill Clifford to claim it as his own.

Deathtrap holds the record for the longest-running comedy-thriller on Broadway and was nominated for four Tony awards, including Best Play. It was adapted into a 1982 film starring Christopher Reeve, Michael Caine and Dyan Cannon.

A terrifying thriller from the author of Rosemary’s Baby.
