Sidney Bruhl is a successful writer of Broadway thrillers who has hit a dry spell; when one of his writing students comes up with a script that could be a hit, he and his wife hatch a plan that soon turns into an exercise in cat-and-mouse suspense. That's the basis of "Deathtrap" by Ira Levin, the author of "Rosemary's Baby," who knew a thing about suspense and thrills. "Deathtrap" made a killing on Broadway in the 1970's and has been a community theater staple ever since; Penfield Players' current production has two performances remaining, this Friday and Saturday. The show is part of Penfield Players' 50th anniversary season.
Penfield Players present "Deathtrap" on Friday, May 15, and Saturday, May 16, at Penfield Community Center, 1985 Baird Road. 8 p.m. $12 in advance, $15 at the door. 340-8655; penfield.org.
