RLTP to Open 2014-15 Season with DEATHTRAP
"Deathtrap"...the title of the ingeniously plotted manuscript that playwright Sydney Bruhl receives, unsolicited, from a former student that Bruhl tells his wife he barely remembers. Bruhl-middle-aged, formerly successful for his own theatrical mysteries but waning in popularity, and dependent upon the finances of his fragile wife Myra, with whom he shares a chatty yet apparently sterile marriage-is so captivated by "Deathtrap" that he invites its author, Clifford Anderson, to Myra's remote cottage in the hopes of forging a collaborative partnership with Clifford.
Deathtrap is the legendary, marathon-running, smash-hit play by Ira Levin, creator of Rosemary's Baby and The Stepford Wives. Following its four-year, world-premiere engagement on Broadway, a 1982 film adaptation starring Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve, RLTP offers its own unique take on this offbeat comedy-thriller chestnut. Deathtrap is a multilayered whodunit, a sharp-tongued farce... and a real scream.
Deathtrap opens Friday, September 12th and runs through Sunday, October 12th at the Road Less Traveled Theater in the Market Arcade Film and Arts Centre.
