Death Trap: A Thriller in Two Acts by Ira Levin
In Death Trap, 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. He needs to solve this shortage of funds quickly so he devises a clever plan with his wifes help, inviting an eager former student to his home after reading the students well-crafted play. The student accepts readily. And, thus, the suspense begins mounting steadily with devilish cleverness, twisting and churning to the bitter end. Described as a comedy-thriller and a play within a play, it will bring you bouncing along to the startling and shocking conclusion.
Directed by Alan Wilkie. His most recent directing credits at Valley Center Stage include Five Women Wearing the Same Dress and Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol.

"Two-thirds a thriller and one-third a devilishly clever comedy Suspend your disbelief and be delighted. Scream a little. It's good for you." -- Cue Magazine
"If you care to assassinate yourself with laughter, try DEATHTRAP." -- Time Magazine

Online ticket sales end 3 hours before a performance. If you see "Sales Ended" for the performance date which you would like to attend, you may still be able to purchase a ticket at the box office. We set aside a certain number of seats for people purchasing tickets at the door. The box office opens at 7 PM, so you might want to arrive at 6:30 PM in order to maximize your chances of a ticket being available at the door. It's very rare for us to not be able to accommodate all who desire to see a performance.
