Sidney Bruhl is a Broadway playwright who hasn’t had a hit for a while and now has writer’s block. So when young writer Clifford Anderson turns up at Sidney’s remote home with his new play Sidney hatches a plan to kill him and pass off the script as his own. But in this ingeniously constructed play is everything what it first appears to be?

Deathtrap holds the record for the longest running comedy thriller on Broadway and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play.

This new production is directed by Adam Penford who has recently directed Alan Ayckbourn’s A Small Family Business and is Revival Director for One Man, Two Guvnors, both for the National Theatre.

‘A killer thriller with real caviar quality…a seriously enjoyable evening’
The Times


Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Ltd.
