“Deathtrap,” a 1978 play by Ira Levin, opens Friday, March 8, for a two-week run at Main Street Theatre.
The two-act play holds the record for the longest running comedy-thriller on Broadway. It was also adapted into a 1982 film, starring the late Christopher Reeve, Michael Caine and Dyan Cannon.
The story centers on a down-and-out playwright and his student, who has written the perfect suspense play. The student plans to bring the script to his teacher’s Connecticut home. The suspense over whether the playwright will kill the student and take credit for his play forms the crux of this thriller.
