Deathtrap Audition Information (Character Synopsis)

Deathtrap ran on Broadway for four years, holding the record for the longest run by a comedy-thriller. It is the best known play written by Ira Levin, who is known to many as the author of the novels "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Stepford Wives."  Auditions are June 22 at 9:00 a.m.

Setting: The Bruhl home.  Westport Connecticut, October, 1978

Character Synopsis:

Sidney Bruhl 40+
A writer, Sidney has made his living off creating several Broadway hits. He is charming, smart, cynical, pompous, perhaps a little underhanded, indeed all traits needed in a man whose job is to create a good thriller. Sidney has a plan to carry out, and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

Myra Bruhl 35+
Myra is a loving wife of 11 years who enjoys her life and home with Sidney. She is attractive, spiritual, kind, and naive. She wants what is best for her and Sidney, and to maintain their current lifestyle as best they can.

Clifford Anderson 20 -30
A student at a nearby college, Clifford is a blossoming writer; young, athletic, and handsome. He has been asked to the Bruhl home and is in awe of Sidney, his mentor, as well as the possibilities of his current situation.

Helga Ten Dorp 40+
(could be younger, makeup possible, depends on actress) A dutch psychic. Provides a bit of comic relief. She has been plagued by a lifetime of images and visions. Frazzled at times, Helga visits the Bruhl home occasionally, as she is a guest at a home down the street.

Porter Milgrim 40+
Sidney and Myra's attorney and good friend. He is logical and straightforward. Attentive to detail, Porter helps the Bruhl's keep track of their legal matters.
