by Ira Levin
Oct. 29 - Nov. 14, 1987
Directed by Deborah Franklin
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 which Sidney recognizes
immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney's plan, which he devises with
his wife's help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the
younger man quickly accepts.
Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the plot
begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance of
thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final,
startling moments of the play.
