Full cast of ‘Deathtrap’ announced

Full casting for the UK tour of Ira Levin’s Tony-nominated classic thriller Deathtrap appearing at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre from Tue 19 – Sat 23 Sep, includes Sam Phillips (Clifford), Beverly Klein (Helga ten Dorp) and Julien Ball (Porter). They join the previously announced TV stars Paul Bradley (Holby City and EastEnders) as Sidney Bruhl and BAFTA nominee Jessie Wallace (EastEnders and Fings Ain’t Wot They Used T’Be) as Myra Bruhl.

Written by the award-winning playwright and author Ira Levin (Rosemary’s Baby, The Stepford Wives and Critics Choice), Deathtrap is directed by the newly-appointed Artistic Director Designate of Nottingham Playhouse Adam Penford (The Boys in the Band, A Small Family Business and in June 2017, Committee at the Donmar Warehouse), and returns following a limited run at Salisbury Playhouse.

Deathtrap is produced by Mark Puddle in association with Paul Tyrer and Jamie Clark for TBO Productions and is a Salisbury Playhouse Production. Costume and set design is by Morgan Large, with lighting by James Whiteside, sound by Ben and Max Ringham, video design by Duncan McLean.

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 (Phillips) 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 a masterpiece of seat-gripping suspenseful writing, and continues to hold the record as the longest running thriller in Broadway history. Deathtrap was subsequently made into a smash-hit film starring Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve.
