Asylum Theatre presents the Singapore Premiere of Ira Levin's Deathtrap - the Tony Award - nominated, longest-running thriller-comedy in Broadway history!

Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl (Andrew Mowatt), a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell that has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student, Clifford Anderson (Chris Bucko), in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby university—a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney's plan, which he devises with his wife Myra (Elena Yeo), is to collaborate with the student, an idea the younger man quickly accepts.

Complicating matters are Sydney and Myra’s kooky psychic neighbor Helga Ten Dorp (Bridget Fernandez) and Sydney’s suspicious lawyer, Porter Milgrim (Paul Lucas). Suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to twist and turn with devilish cleverness, culminating in the play’s startling conclusion.

Directed by award-winning playwright/director Dean Lundquist, Deathtrap will hold audiences spellbound.
