In DEATHTRAP, by Ira Levin, Sidney Bruhl is a playwright who is most famous for his mystery thriller "The Murder Game." Following the debut of the latest of a series of flops, he returns to his home in East Hampton and to his wife Myra. He tells her that he's received a play called "Deathtrap" from a former student from a playwriting seminar. The play is ready for production and Sidney jokingly suggests that he murder the student and steal the play, a joke that becomes more serious when he learns, after calling the student, that no one else has read the play and no one else has a copy. Sidney invites the student up to Long Island. The student, Clifford Anderson, arrives shortly thereafter.
And now you know the beginning of the story. The playwright Ira Levin describes DEATHTRAP as a thriller in two acts. You will be filled gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter as you watch this play unfold.
Deathtrap is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. New York
