Allen Contemporary Theatre will present Deathtrap by Ira Levin. The thriller blends comedy and murder in a devilishly twisted manner.

Sidney Bruhl has had success as a playwright but the creative well has run dry. He and his wife, Myra, are facing a shaky financial future. Then a sure-fire hit script falls into Sidney’s hands. Unfortunately, Sidney did not write it. Clifford Anderson, a writer who took a seminar with Sidney, has written this masterful play. What would someone do for success and acclaim? Commit murder? Maybe.

The plot gets complicated by a world-famous psychic, Helga ten Dorp, staying nearby and sensing danger. Sidney and Myra’s friend and lawyer, Porter Milgrim, has his suspicions as well. What price will Sidney pay to regain fame and fortune?

Deathtrap is the longest running comedic thriller in Broadway history and was made into a film starring Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve.
