A brand new production of Ira Levin’s Tony-nominated classic thriller.

Sidney Bruhl, a once- successful writer of stage thrillers, is in the grip of chronic writer’s block. Out of the blue, young playwright Clifford Anderson sends Bruhl one of the only two copies of his brilliant new whodunit, Deathtrap.

Desperate to set Broadway alight once more, Sidney spies his chance to invite Clifford to his remote country home. Oh, and to bring the only other copy of Deathtrap with him! If Bruhl can kill the newcomer and pass the play off as his own, he could once again be the toast of Broadway.

Written by award-winning playwright and author Ira Levin (Rosemary’s Baby, The Stepford Wives and Critics Choice) and starring Paul Bradley (Holby City and EastEnders) as Sidney Bruhl and BAFTA nominee Jessie Wallace (EastEnders and Fings Ain’t Wot They Used T’Be) as Myra Bruhl.

 A truly satisfying spine-chiller that is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. One of the most successful plays in its genre, Deathtrap promises an ingenious maze of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end.

Deathtrap continues to hold the record as the longest running thriller in Broadway history.
