A smash hit on Broadway and in London, this ingeniously constructed play offers a rare and skillful blend of gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter. Ensconced in his charming Connecticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a " dry" spell. A possible break occurs when a student from a seminar he had taught sends him a script-a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential hit. His wife helps devise a plan for collaboration, which the young playwright accepts. Thereafter, the suspense mounts steadily as the plot twists and turns with devilish cleverness toward a startling climax.
