Chanticleers closes season with "Deathtrap" mystery play

Submitted By Suzan Lorraine

Playwright Sidney Bruhl is finding that writing the perfect murder mystery isn't as easy as it looks - and it doesn't help that he hasn't had a hit play for ten years. So he cheats by using "a script to die for" sent to him by a gifted student. Will it work? Or is Sidney in deeper trouble than a mere script might provide?

"Deathtrap," Chanticleers Theatre's 2012 season closer, is the longest running comedy-thriller on Broadway and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play. Director Gary Wright has put together an outstanding cast to make this mystery an audience delight. With Chanticleer veteran actors C. Conrad Cady, Lindi Press, Svetlana Coutre, Kai Brothers, and John Sellen, this play comes alive and keeps you on the edge of your seat. In "Deathtrap" author Ira Levin has taken the basic components of thrillers and horror stories - murder, deceit, innocent dialogue with hidden sinister meanings, plot reversals, unexpected turns of events - and twisted and rearranged the pieces again and again.

The show opens October 19 and runs Friday and Saturday through November 10 at 8 p.m. with matinees on Sundays October 28 and November 4 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $18 general and $15 for seniors 60+ and students. Saturday, October 20 is Bargain Night with all tickets just $13. Call (510) 733-5483 or purchase online at
