Playcrafters Unspooling A ‘Deathtrap’ This Weekend
Playcrafters Barn Theater is unwinding a devious “Deathtrap” this weekend, rolling out the classic thriller September 9,10,11 & 16,17,18 at its 4950 35th Ave., Moline venue.
Directed by Patti Flaherty, and starring Jason Platt, Adam Cerny, Nancy Teelink and Pamela Briggs, “Deathtrap” involves Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, who is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds.
His luck changes when he receives a script from a student – a thriller with the potential to be a Broadway hit. Sidney and his wife, Myra, devise a trap to scoop up the script and take credit for its creation. Murderous machinations result, the plot twists and turns with devilish cleverness, and you’ll be left guessing until the final moments.
