SYNOPSIS:
DEATHTRAP centers on Sidney Bruhl, a formerly successful writer of Broadway thrillers currently plagued by a dry spell. After a string of recent failures, Sidney receives in the mail an extremely promising play written by one of his seminar students. To what lengths will Sidney go to claim the play as his own and re-establish his success?

CHARACTERS:

Sidney Bruhl
– male, 50s. He is a stately, wry, erudite and distinguished writer. He has a strong magnetizing presence of a man who has achieved great fame and stature. Sidney is celebrated playwright of mystery thrillers who gained astonishing success early in his career, but has hit a dry spell. This role is physical and will require some stage combat.

  Myra Bruhl – female, 40s-50s. She is a modest, self-effacing upper-middle class woman. She has a nervous, quick disposition and tends to follow rather than lead, and has been married to Sidney for eleven years. Some physicality is required.

Clifford Anderson – male, 20s-30s. Charismatic, sturdy, good-looking, with youthful and optimistic exuberance, Clifford is a former writing student of Sidney’s. This role is physical and will require some stage combat.

Helga Ten Dorp – female, 40s and older. A wildly eccentric and mysterious Eastern European psychic, Helga's magical powers are very real and potent. She is a celebrity and enjoys the fame, attention, and the status that comes with it. Some physicality is required.

 Porter Milgram
– male, 50s. A pragmatic though fairly meddlesome lawyer, he is a direct, to-the-point businessman who oversees Sidney’s legal affairs.

PERFORMANCE DATES:
November 1, 2, 8, and 9 at 8:00pm
November 3 and 10 at 2:00pm
