Clare Rose Playhouse, 155 West Roe Blvd., Patchogue, NY
The Clare Rose Playhouse at St. Joseph’s College presents "Deathtrap" by Ira Levin. Comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which 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 that Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway smash. Sidney's plan, devised with his wife's help, is to offer collaboration to the student for co-credit. Or is it? "Deathtrap" provides twists and turns of devilish cleverness, and offers hilariously sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be spellbound until the very last moment.
Cost is $15; $12 for students and seniors. For more information or to purchase tickets, call the Playhouse at 631.654.0199.
