Stage and television stars Paul Bradley and Jessie Wallace lead the cast of Deathtrap; a truly satisfying spine-chiller that is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Sidney Bruhl, a once-successful writer of stage thrillers, is in the grip of chronic writer’s block, when young playwright Clifford Anderson sends Bruhl his brilliant new whodunit, Deathtrap. Desperate to set Broadway alight once more, should Bruhl kill the newcomer and pass the play off as his own?

Deathtrap continues to hold the record as the longest running thriller in Broadway history.

Paul Bradley is best known for his ten year role playing prime time TV favourite Professor Elliot Hope in BBC’s Holby City, as well playing Nigel Bates in EastEnders for six years. Jessie Wallace is best known for the iconic role of Kat Slater in EastEnders, for which a spin-off series, Redwater, based on her character will be on the BBC in May.

Book now for this wickedly enjoyably ‘who’ll do it’ where no one is exactly what they first appear to be!

Running time: About 2 hours and 25 minutes (including a 15 minute interval)

Mark Puddle in association with Paul Tyrer & Jamie Clark for TBO Productions present the Salisbury Playhouse production. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.
