Community Arts Council to perform Deathtrap


 

 

Offering five shows spanning a two-weekend period, the Community Arts Council of Blount County will perform Deathtrap, a thriller in two acts, in February.

This 1978 Ira Levin masterpiece is presented on one set with only five characters. It is performed in two acts, with five scenes, and is described as a play with many plot twists. Director Michael Hollingsworth said, “It’s a unique murder-thriller appropriate for teens and adults.”

The story centers around Sidney Bruhl, a once-successful playwright who receives an unproduced script from former student Clifford Anderson. Recognizing the script is better than anything he has written in years, Bruhl plans to lure Anderson to his home, murder him, and proclaim the script as his own work.

Deathtrap will be performed at the Frank Green Building on Fridays, Feb. 1 and 8, and Saturdays, Feb. 2 and 9, at 7 p.m. There willalsobea2p.m.matineeperformanceonSunday,Feb.10. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by clicking on the “Buy Tickets Now” link at communityartscouncil.com.
