Ira Levin’s classic comedy-thriller Deathtrap comes to the Millgate stage from 28 March to 4 April.
The action takes place in a writer’s study, which is a classy stable conversion, attached to an old Colonial house in The East Hamptons, USA, belonging to Sidney and Myra Bruhl.
The Cast . . .
David Noble – Sidney Bruhl
He is a sophisticated, articulate, clever man who was previously a highly successful playwright but is currently a failing one, desperately trying to get back into the theatrical limelight which he craves.
Chris Richardson – Clifford Anderson
This visitor is the self effacing, polite, eager ex-student of Bruhl’s who has written a play and seeks the critique and hopefully approval of the playwright.
Sarah Carroll – Myra Bruhl
She is Sidney’s beautiful, sophisticated and supportive wife, who suffers from anxiety and has a debilitating health condition.
Helga ten Dorp – Siobhan Ebden
This spiritual, eccentric psychic is a neighbour, who calls round and, very disconcertingly, picks up on past occurrences and things yet to come.
Andrew Wilson – Porter Milgrim
He is a smart, observant, upper crust barrister, who has known Sidney for years and manages the family affairs.
As the characters mingle, it becomes apparent that everything is not what it seems! Or is it?
