Sidney Bruhl is struggling to overcome a bout of writer’s block that has seen his Broadway success turn to near bankruptcy. But the answer to everything may be a script written by his former student, Clifford Anderson.

Anderson just wants his mentor’s opinion, but Bruhl will do whatever it takes to get back on Broadway.

Written by Ira Levin, the show holds the record for the longest-running comedy-thriller on Broadway and has been a favourite of the genre since its debut in 1978. Full of twists and turns, this spine-chilling production features an all-star cast including Mark Bellamy, Karen-Johnson Diamond, Barbara Gates Wilson, Kevin Corey, and Tyrell Crews.

Deathtrap runs January 26 to February 24, 2019 at Vertigo Theatre (161, 115 9th Ave. SE). Previews run January 26 to 30 with the official opening on January 31.
