Sidney Bruhl, the writer at the center of Ira Levin’s 1978 play Deathtrap, hasn’t had a hit in almost 20 years when Deathtrap (the play within the play) shows up at his door. Written by a college student, Sidney sees (and seizes) the opportunity to offer the student, Clifford, the chance to collaborate with him, so long as he brings with him all copies of the play and all his notes. Yes, Sidney has an ulterior motive – his wife, Myra, picks up on it too – but things are far from what they seem, the twists and turns coming hard and fast, in this whodunit from Levin, the author of many popular novels including Rosemary’s Baby, The Stepford Wives and A Kiss Before Dying. 8 p.m. Friday. Continuing 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 3 p.m. November 5. October 27 through November 18. For information, call 713-661-9505 or visit $17 to $19.
