Deathtrap

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. Paul Bradley is best known for his ten year role playing prime time TV favourite Professor Elliott Hope in BBC's Holby City as well as playing Nigel Bates in EastEnders for 6 years. Jessie Wallace is best known for having created the iconic role of Kat Slater in EastEnders and has recently starred in a spin-off series called Redwater. In the play, Sydney Bruhl, a once successful writer of stage thrillers, is in the grip of writers' block. A brilliant new play is sent to him by a young playwright - posing a dilemma for Bruhl - should he pass the play off as his own? Deathtrap holds the record for the longest running thriller in Broadway history.
