In Deathtrap, playwright Sidney Bruhl has had a string of failures lately and is low on money. He sees a hit in a thriller one of his students has created. The student and teacher playwrights ultimately collaborate, but Sidney begins to feel more uneasy as the play as well as his surroundings take more unexpected twists and turns.
Little Colonel Playhouse will next present The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged, which will run in March. Auditions will occur on Jan. 16 and 17 at 7 p.m. in the Playhouse.
