A HUGELY popular stage and screen success, Deathtrap by Ira Levin is a ‘wickedly amusing whodunnit’.

Presented by Skipton Players, and directed by Phil Smith, Deathtrap will run at Skipton Little Theatre in Clifford Street, from Tuesday, February 15 to Saturday, February 19.

A spokesperson for Skipton Players, said: “ This ingeniously constructed play offers a rare and skilful blending of two priceless theatrical ingredients - gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter.

“Unknown dramatist Clifford Anderson has sent his new thriller to award-winning author Sidney for comment - or has he?

“Without a success to his credit for some years, Sidney plots with his reluctant wife Myra about how best to plagiarize ‘Deathtrap’ and when Clifford turns up to discuss the play with the ‘Master’ events take a sinister turn.”

By popular demand, the Players are also adding a Saturday matinee, at 2pm on February 19.

Those coming to the performances are asked to use the nearby Cavendish Street Car Park, which is free to use after 6pm.
