A murder mystery so wickedly good, it's to die for!

Closed 1 Jan 2011

Simon Russell Beale and Jonathan Groff star in a new Matthew Warchus production of Ira Levin's comic murder thriller 'Deathtrap'.

Groff plays the part of Clifford, a gifted young writer who befriends Sidney Bruhl (Russell Beale), a best-selling novelist and playwright. He turns up at Bruhl's Connecticut home with a new stage thriller which turns out to be superior to anything Bruhl has done.

Deathtrap took Broadway and the West End by storm in the 1980's and became a hugely succesful motion picture with Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve.
