Deathtrap is about a washed-up playwright who finds a chance to rise to the top once more, a shot he’d be willing to kill for. Sidney Bruhl hadn’t written a play for 18 years when he receives a script from a former student, Clifford Anderson, for a guaranteed success.
When Clifford arrives later that evening, no one–not even the visiting psychic–can predict where the dark events of the night will go. Who is innocent? Who only seems that way? Deathtrap is a sharply funny play full of twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat.
