Deathtrap holds the record as the longest running thriller in Broadway history.
Washed-up playwright Sidney Bruhl is desperate - he’s not had a hit play in years, inspiration is nonexistent and funds are desperately low. A break in his fortunes occurs when a student asks him to read DEATHTRAP - a play Sidney immediately recognises as a potential Broadway hit.

Chasing a desperate desire to once again be the toast of Broadway, Sidney is prepared to do whatever it takes. Deathtrap, it turns out, really is a play to die for.

Plotting and double-crossing come thick and fast in this brilliant maze of backstabbing twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end.

One of the most successful black comedies ever, Deathtrap is a truly satisfying spine-chilling thriller that will have you laughing and screaming in equal measure.
