A devilishly clever thriller
by Ira Levin

May 6 – Aug 19

“A twisting plot of hidden meanings, shock-inducing moments, dark laughs, and maze-like intrigue.” (The Daily Express) Sidney Bruhl is a washed-up, has-been playwright. He’ll go to any length for a hit. Any length. When a young protégé sends him a draft of a surefire Broadway hit, he hatches a plot to—well, we wouldn’t want to spoil anything now, would we? From the mischievous mind of Ira Levin, Deathtrap is a devilishly clever thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat till the final bow.
