Murder should not be this much fun!
Famed playwright Sidney Bruhl debuts the latest in a series of Broadway flops and returns to his Long Island home. To make Sidney’s slump all the more painful, Clifford Anderson, a student of one of Sidney’s writing seminars, has recently sent his mentor a copy of his first attempt at playwrighting for Sidney’s review and advice. The play, “Deathtrap,” is a five character, two act thriller so perfect in its construction that, as Sidney says, “A gifted director couldn’t even hurt it.” Using his penchant for plot, and out of his desperate desire to once again be the toast of Broadway, Sidney, along with his wife Myra, cook up an almost unthinkable scheme. Come follow the twists and turns of this modern mystery.
Deathtrap holds the record for the longest running comedy-thriller on Broadway.
