Next Production : "Deathtrap".
Deathtrap was written by Ira Levin (1929-2007). It opened on Broadway on February 26, 1978 and enjoyed a four year run of 1,809 performances.
Seemingly comfortably 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.
REHEARSALS and MEETINGS
We are always pleased to hear from people who would like to join us and they would be welcome to participate in any aspect of the company. Although new actors and actresses are always welcome, a drama company cannot function without people to help with costumes, props, sets, and administration.The company meets weekly for rehearsals, usually on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm. Rehearsal days do occasionally change, so to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to contact The Ucheldre Centre on 01407 763361 to confirm the plans for the current week.
