Deathtrap

Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a “dry” spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of finds.  A possible break in his fortunes occurs  when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a near college.  A thriller which Sindey recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit.  Sidney’s plan, which he devises with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts.  The suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn until the final. startling moments of the play.
