January 16 to 26, 2003
Deathtrap offers a rare and skilful blending of gasp-inducing surprises and spontaneous laughter. Dealing with the devious machinations of a writer of thriller who has recently written only flops, and will go to any lengths to improve his fortunes, it provides a plot that twists and turns with such devilish cleverness that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments.
By the author of such thriller as Rosemary's Baby, The Stepford Wives, and the Boys from Brazil.

When Buddy suddenly moves into Alan's apartment, leaving only a rebellions letter for his parents, a whole string of comic complications ensue.
