About "Deathtrap" - A Thriller by Ira Levin

Thriller with a twist! Comfortably ensconced in his Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college—a thriller that Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential smash hit. Sidney’s plan, devised with his wife’s help, provides twists and turns of devilish cleverness, and offers sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be spellbound until the very last moment. Presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection. Reviews: “It is a classic thriller, a genre with a style, a manner and an audience of its own.” — New York Post “The intricately fashioned plot contortions brought gasps, the comedy lines drew delighted chortles…” — The Hollywood Reporter “Two-thirds a thriller and one-third a devilishly clever comedy… Suspend your disbelief and be delighted. Scream a little. It’s good for you.” — Cue Magazine “If you care to assassinate yourself with laughter, try DEATHTRAP.” — Time Magazine. Directed by Jeff Richards
