When once-successful playwright Sidney Bruhl sees his latest Broadway effort bomb on its opening night, he tumbles into despair - until he receives a package from his former student Clifford Anderson. Inside is an unproduced script that's better than anything Sidney has written in years.
To the dismay of his wife, Myra, Sidney undertakes a plan to lure Clifford to his country home, murder him and then announce the script as his own work. Everything goes exactly to plan. Or does it?
The play is known as one of the biggest Broadway hits. In Deathtrap, Levin has taken murder, deceit, innocent dialogue with hidden sinister meanings, plot reversals, and unexpected turns of events, and twisted them into a delicious, dangerous puzzle.
