Directed by Daryl Harris and Produced by Karen Pierson
Deathtrap is “Two-thirds a thriller and one-third a devilishly clever comedy”.
One of the great popular successes of recent Broadway history, this ingeniously constructed play offers a rare and skillful blending of two priceless theatrical ingredients: gasping inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter. A down-on-his-luck playwright’s student tells him he has written the perfect suspense play and will bring it to the playwright’s Connecticut home tonight.
The suspense over whether the playwright will kill the student and take credit for his play forms the crux of Ira Levin’s thriller. Deathtrap provides twists and turns and sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be held spellbound until the very last moment.
