About the show


Stage and Television stars Paul Bradley and Jessie Wallace lead the cast of Deathtrap; a truly satisfying spine-chiller that is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.

A Killer Thriller with real caviar quality
The Times

Paul Bradley is best known for his ten year role playing prime time TV favourite ‘Professor Elliot Hope’ in BBC’s Holby City, as well playing ‘Nigel Bates’ in EastEnders for six years. Jessie Wallace is best known for having created the iconic role of ‘Kat Slater’ in EastEnders, for which a spin-off series, Redwater, based on her character will be on the BBC in May.

Sidney Bruhl, a once-successful writer of stage thrillers, is in the grip of chronic writer’s block, when young playwright Clifford Anderson sends Bruhl his brilliant new whodunit, Deathtrap. Desperate to set Broadway alight once more, should Bruhl kill the newcomer and pass the play off as his own?

More twists than a bucket of snakes
The Telegraph

Deathtrap continues to hold the record as the longest running thriller in Broadway history.

Book now for this wickedly enjoyably ‘who’ll do it’ where no one is exactly what they first appear to be!
