In this thriller, Playwright Sidney Bruhl needs a hit, desperately. Is he willing to kill to get it? Will his wife help him? How far will their nerve take them? And what will handsome Cliff’s reaction be when he finds out? "Deathtrap" was the longest running comedy thriller on Broadway, subsequently made into a movie starring Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve.
