(7/18/2018) - Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college-a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney's plan, which he devises with his wife's help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with an abundance of thrills and laughter!
Deathtrap written by Ira Levin is directed by Douglas C. Shaffer. The cast includes: Sidney Bruhl: Jim Speegle, Myra Bruhl: Beth Nuzum Cronenweth, Clifford Anderson: Steve Stumphauzer, Helga Ten Dorp: Anita McFarren, and Porter Milgrim: Kevin Doll.
Performances are July 19th thru July 29th at the Columbus Dance Theatre, 592 E. Main St., Columbus, OH 43215. For tickets or more information, visit: https://pacecolumbus.com/Photo Flash: African-American Shakespeare Company Presents RICHARD III by BWW News Desk - San Francisco
