Little Lake Theatre Company presents ‘Deathtrap’ Opening July 20th

J. Cody Spellman Directs the 4th Show in Little Lakes Theatre’s 75th Anniversary Season

Deathtrap is a top-rated and successful play written in 1978 by Ira Levin, an American playwright and novelist. The show is a thrilling, dark comedy that premiered on Broadway in 1978, and this Tony-nominated Best Play has become one of the longest-running plays in the genre. Deathtrap combines elements of mystery, suspense, and humor to captivate audiences.

Comfortably ensconced in his charming Westport, Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is experiencing a dry spell in his career. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller that Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway smash. Sidney’s plan, devised with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student for co-credit as the story unfolds as the characters engage in unexpected twists and turns.

Levine skillfully combines elements of a classic whodunit with dark humor, making it an entertaining and thrilling experience with its clever and intricate plot that keeps audiences guessing until the very end. 


Deathtrap at the Little Lake Theatre in Canonsburg has performances from July 20 – August 6, 2023. Tickets start at $25 for Adults and $15 for children 16 and under.
