Nominated for four Tony Awards including Best Play, Ira Levin’s “Deathtrap” holds the record for the longest-running comedy-thriller on Broadway. A.C.T. Studio Theatre is pleased to present a “ . . . rare offering that has found success both in film and on stage,” said the show’s director Richie Lester. “Ingeniously constructed, the plot always manages to stay just a step or two ahead of the audience, and blends gasp-inducing thrills with spontaneous laughter.”
“A fading, once-famous playwright receives the first draft of a new thriller from a former student and instantly recognizes that the play is so perfect that ‘even a gifted director couldn’t hurt it.’ Without a successful play to his credit for 18 years, [the elder playwright] plots with his reluctant wife to steal the play in a plan so bold and unpredictable that it can’t help but unravel in the most delicious ways,” adds Mr. Lester.
Known as one of the biggest hits on Broadway, “Deathtrap” will appear on stage at A.C.T. Studio Theatre May 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20. Friday and Saturday evening performances are at 8 p.m.; Sunday matinees are at 3 p.m. The play stars Richie Lester, J. Paul Heiner, Clelia Patrizio, Colette Schweizer and Robert Pollock.
