Salisbury Playhouse’s ‘Deathtrap’ to embark on a UK tour

A brand new production of Ira Levin’s Tony-nominated classic thriller Deathtrap will embark on a 12-week national tour for the first time in 20 years, opening at the Theatre Royal Brighton on Thursday 14 September.

Directed by the newly appointed Artistic Director Designate of Nottingham Playhouse, Adam Penford, the production stars Paul Bradley (Holby City and EastEnders) in the role of Sidney Bruhl and Jessie Wallace (EastEnders and Fings Ain’t Wot They Used T’Be) as Myra Bruhl. 

The longest running thriller in Broadway history, Deathtrap is a truly satisfying spine-chiller that is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. One of the most successful plays in its genre, Deathtrap promises an ingenious maze of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end. 

Sidney Bruhl (Bradley), a once- successful writer of stage thrillers, is in the grip of chronic writer’s block. Out of the blue, young playwright Clifford Anderson sends Bruhl one of the only two copies of his brilliant new whodunit, Deathtrap. 

Desperate to set Broadway alight once more, Sidney spies his chance to invite Clifford to his remote country home. Oh, and to bring the only other copy of Deathtrap with him! 

If Bruhl can kill the newcomer and pass the play off as his own, he could once again be the toast of Broadway. 

Deathtrap is produced by Mark Puddle in association with Paul Tyrer and Jamie Clark for TBO Productions.

Costume and set design is by Morgan Large, with lighting by James Whiteside, sound by Max Ringham, video design by Duncan McLean.
