The trap is set…. for a wickedly funny
TTC presents Ira Levin’s multi-award-winning, comedy-thriller, Deathtrap which still holds the record for the longest-running comedy-thriller on Broadway. This ingeniously constructed play offers a rare and skillful blending of two priceless theatrical ingredients – gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter.
Unknown dramatist Clifford Anderson has sent his new thriller entitled ‘Deathtrap’ to award-winning Broadway playwright, Sidney Bruhl, for comment. Without a success to his credit for some years, Sidney plots with his reluctant wife Myra about how best to plagiarise ‘Deathtrap’ and when Clifford turns up to discuss the play with the ‘Master’, events take a sinister turn. No one–not even the visiting psychic–could predict where the dark events of the night will go. Who is innocent? Who only seems that way?
Deathtrap is a sharply funnyplay full of twists and turns that keep an audience on the edge of their seats.
Is anyone really safe when a man sees a clean shot at success?
“Even a gifted director couldn’t hurt it” – Sidney Bruhl
This amateur production of “Deathtrap” is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd, a Concord Theatricals Company.
