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 that Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway smash. Sidney’s plan, devised with his wife’s help, is to offer collaboration to the student for co-credit. Or is it? DEATHTRAP provides twists and turns of devilish cleverness, and offers hilariously sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be spellbound until the very last moment.

Please be advised, this show contains strong language, adult themes, physical violence, and one gunshot. Possible strobe effects may be utilized. Please indicate on the audition signup form if there are any personal or medical exceptions to any of this content.


SIDNEY BRUHL [Male, 40’s to late 50’s, physical role] || A successful and prolific playwright with waning fame. Sharp wit, seemingly aloof, always cracking wise. Prone to bouts of seriousness. Married to Myra.

MYRA BRUHL [Female, 40’s to late 50’s, light physical role] || Clinically anxious, modest. Hospitable and warm even when it causes her stress or further anxiety. Lives on generational wealth, possibly genteel. Married to Sidney.

CLIFFORD ANDERSON [Male, 20’s to 30, physical role] || Ambitious aspiring playwright. Warm and charming, if perhaps naive. Dedicated to his personal vision or craft, may be politely stubborn or defiant.

HELGA TEN DORP [Female, 35+, light physical role] || “Dutch” psychic/energy reader. Very eccentric, with a flair for the dramatic. Has hidden ambitions for fame and enjoys the spotlight.

PORTER MILGRIM [Male, 30+, light physical role] || Sidney’s lawyer. Straight-laced and serious when in professional dealings. Loyal and dedicated to his clients, familiar and friendly with Sidney when not offering counsel. Dry, but good-humored.
