FCT presents Deathtrap
by Ira Levin

THE STORY: Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl (played by Shawn Cox), 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 funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student (played by Michael Bertone) in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college-a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney's plan, which he devises with his wife's (played by Elise Ariel) help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.

One of the great popular successes of recent Broadway history, this ingeniously constructed play offers a rare and skillful blending of two priceless theatrical ingredients: gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter, DEATHTRAP provides twists and turns and sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be held spellbound until the very last moment. 

"It is a classic thriller, a genre with a style, a manner and an audience of its own. If you like thrillers, do see it. I promise you that it is vintage." -NY 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.
