MILL HALL, PA – Beginning on Friday, Oct. 22 Millbrook Playhouse will present the classic thriller Deathtrap by Ira Levin on the Ryan Main Stage. Deathtrap follows the story of playwright Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, who is struggling to overcome a dry spell that 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. After that, suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness and with such an abundance of thrills and laughter that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.
