Actors wanted - not a trap

Deathtrap, by playwright Ira Levin (Rosemary’s Baby, The Stepford Wives, The Boys from Brazil) is Evolution Theatre Company’s next production and director Dinna Myers invites you to audition for a part or join in as a crew member.

The play has many plot twists and references itself as a play within a play. It is in two acts and features five characters.

When once-successful playwright Sidney Bruhl sees his latest Broadway effort bomb on opening night, he tumbles into despair. Then he receives a package from former student Clifford Anderson. Inside is an unproduced script that’s better than anything Sidney has written in years. To the dismay of his wife, Myra, Sidney plans to lure Clifford to his country home, murder him, and announce the script as his own work. Everything goes exactly to plan. Or does it?

Auditions will be held at Evolution Theatre Company, 75 Disraeli Street on Sunday, May 5, 12pm. Rehearsals start 20 May and run Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. Performances are July 26 — August 10.
