By Ira Levin
Sidney Bruhl is a famous playwright of thrillers, but he hasn’t had a hit in years. Along comes Clifford Anderson, an enthusiastic student and fan of Sidney’s, who’s just written the perfect play – a five-character, one-set, two-act thriller. Certainly Sidney should have a piece of this pie? After all, it was his teachings that influenced Clifford! Sidney’s wife Myra suggests the two men collaborate – this success should be shared. But that’s where the story takes a turn… Are the playwrights working with or against each other? As with all great thrillers, you’ll have to see it for yourself to find out.
Directed by Don Briard and stage managed by Shay Cameron, this award-winning thriller stars:
Drew Taylor as Sidney Bruhl
Melanie Preston as Myra Bruhl
James Behenna as Clifford Anderson
Deborah Tom as Helga ten Dorp
Don Briard as Porter Milgrim
“It is a classic thriller, a genre with a style, a manner and an audience of its own. If you like thrillers, do see it. I promise you that it is vintage.” ~ NY Post
“Two-thirds a thriller and one-third a devilishly clever comedy… Suspend your disbelief and be delighted. Scream a little. It’s good for you.” ~ Cue Magazine
