Rehearsals are now underway for our small but perfectly formed cast with Paul Grace & Simon Long taking the lead roles, supported by Sarah H Gordon and new comers Isobel Warner & Geoff Thorne – welcome! Julie Cumbo, who directed Proof, is in charge once again of this brilliant, award winning thriller which was made into a film in 1982 and starred Michael Caine & Christopher Lee.
This exciting, award-winning play will keep you entertained and gripped from start to finish. Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling with a touch of writer’s block when he receives from a student a script which Sidney recognises as a potential hit. He invites the young man to the comfortable Connecticut home that he shares with his wife, Myra, and the plot begins its twists from there!
Full of suspense and surprises, it is the longest-running thriller ever to have run on Broadway. Ira Levin takes the basics – murder, deceit, dialogue with hidden sinister meanings and plot reversals – and contorts them again and again.
As the plot develops, it will make you gasp and it will make you laugh. Come and be spellbound!
Performances will be at The Clubhouse on 16th to 19th April and tickets are now on sale from www.ticketsource.co.uk/mitreplayers or by phone: 07419 340648. The play calls for an elaborate set (but fortunately only one!) which will fit snugly into the hall and transform the audience to a 1970’s Connecticut home and promises to keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat.
