"DUETS" by Peter Quilter
A very funny comedy by the author of Broadway smash End of the Rainbow and the West End hit Glorious! Four sets of characters, four crucial moments. Jonathan and Wendy are on a blind date and hoping to get it right this time even though they've never got it right before; Barrie is not really interested in women but Janet sees that as no reason to stop trying; Shelley and Bobby have decided to holiday in Spain to finalize their divorce whilst drowning in cocktails; Angela is marrying for the third time to the dismay of her brother Toby and amidst a barrage of bad omens and a dress resembling a parachute.
"Woman in a Dressing Gown" by Ted Willis
Jim Preston has been married to Amy for 20 years. They have a son, Brian, a house in London and seem perfectly happy, except Jim is secretly having an affair with co-worker Georgie. Desirous of something more than stolen evenings, Georgie threatens to reveal the affair unless Jim divorces Amy and marries her instead. Jim is forced to choose between his family and his fantasy.
"Deathtrap" by Ira levin
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.
