Deathtrap, A thriller in two acts. One set, five characters, a juicy murder in Act One,  unexpected developments in Act Two. Sound  construction, good dialogue, laughs in the right  places, Highly commercial. So begins the  plotting and planning by Sidney Bruhl, a down  and out playwright, to once again have a successful play.

Currently running through February 9th at  Theater 29, “Deathtrap”, A thriller in two acts  by Ira Levin, follows the exploits of Sidney,  Clifford, Myra, Helga and Porter in the pursuit of the perfect play.

As Myra Bruhl, played by Janet Peercy, asked  Sidney Bruhl, played by Leonard Weber, “”Would you …actually kill someone to have another  successful play?”” After a brief pause Sidney replies ““Don’t be foolish darling, Of course I would.””

Enter Clifford Anderson, played by Benjamin  Bees, author of the “…a gifted director couldn’’t  hurt it” play. Watch closely as the many facets of Clifford are revealed.

All appears to be well until the arrival of a  Dutch physic Helga Ten Dorp, played by Judy Andreshak, who finds lost car keys under clothes dryers.

As if things were not muddled enough, enter  Sidney’s attorney, Porter Milgrim, played by Tom  Highfill. Suffice it to say that Porter is  “sharp, dull, but sharp.”

Does Deathtrap, exist or is it just a ruse? Will  Clifford and Sidney actually collaborate on the
“shaping and pointing up in the right places”  necessary to make Deathtrap the play of the  year. Who is the “woman will use dagger  again… not in play but because of play” as “seen” by Helga Ten Dorp.

Deathtrap..A thriller which will leave you  guessing even after the final curtain has  fallen. Running Friday and Saturday nights  through February 9 with a 2:30 matinee Sunday, February 3.
