Synopsis
Playwright Sidney Bruhl knows all about murder having written a few successful murder mysteries on Broadway. However, his murderous muse has deserted him and his last play flopped. Desperate for another success, he contemplates murder for real. He receives a script from a former student, Clifford Anderson, and is instantly consumed with jealousy as he realises it is the perfect thriller and would be a sure-fire hit on Broadway. He must have it. He invites Clifford over on the pretense of giving it the Bruhl polish. The trap is set.

One of Broadway’s great success stories, Deathtrap, by Ira Levin (Rosemary’s Baby & The Stepford Wives) opened in New York to rave reviews and became the longest running mystery-thriller in Broadway history with 1,793 performances.
Written in 1978, Deathtrap won the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play.
In 1982 it was adapted into a film starring Christopher Reeve, Michael Caine, and Dyan Cannon.
