September 2011 Play Reading - Deathtrap

WHAT: Play reading - Deathtrap by Ira Levin
WHERE: FINNBRIT, Fredrikinkatu 20 A 9 (MAP)
WHEN: Friday, 30th September, 7pm

The season’s first play reading is one you will never find produced by the Players (come on, directors – I dare you). Ira Levin’s Deathtrap could also be known as The Stage Manager’s Nightmare – but you’ll have to come to the reading to find out why. All the arranger is willing to divulge is that the play is a murder-farce/comedy-thriller with more twists in the plot than can be mentioned, as well as a writer with a block, a psychic, some homosexuality, two female and three male characters, and much fun to be had by all who partake in the madness and mayhem. Arranged by Anna R, who seems to specialise in plays absolutely unproduceable on a Players’ stage – previous play readings including Marat/SadeWhat the Butler Saw, and Noises Off …

Bring a bottle if you want one and a friend if you have one – as GB Shaw famously almost said to Winnie the C.
