Deathtrap Audition Notice
Tuesday, 5 March 2019
Auditions for Deathtrap by Ira Levin.
Performance Dates June 11th – June 22nd 2019
Deathtrap is an ingeniously constructed thriller by the master playwright Ira Levin. An ageing playwright becomes aware of a sure-fire smash hit written by an unknown writer. He arranges for the younger man to visit his home to discuss the piece but behind the innocent sounding invitation lies a sinister plot.
This is magnificent play that will have audiences on the edge of their seats. The twists and turns of this sensational example of dramatic brilliance are the product of a very clever mind at the top if its game. Deathtrap ran for 1800 performances on Broadway.
Sidney Bruhl, age 40-70, American, older writer
Myra Bruhl, age 40-70, American, Sidney's wife
Clifford Anderson, age 25-40, American, younger writer
Helga ten Dorp, age 30-70, Dutch, mystic

Medway Little Theatre is situated in historic Rochester, at the heart of the Medway Authority in North Kent. It was converted from a disused warehouse into a 100 (now 96) seat theatre in 1958. In 1995 we acquired the freehold to our premises with the aid of a generous grant from the old Rochester City Council. We are now in our 61st season, a fully-equipped public theatre, with well over 400 productions behind us.
There is always a welcoming atmosphere in our friendly auditorium with its integral bar. Anyone interested in joining the company in any capacity is invited to come along to meet us at our social nights, every Tuesday from 8pm onwards, except during productions.
We have two active Youth Sections:
We organise a one-act play festival annually for visiting youth and adult groups throughout North Kent and beyond, as well as making regular contributions to the life of the Medway Towns through outreach activities and participation in Medway's Arts and Dickens Festivals.
Over the years, we have successfully presented the complete range of theatre, from Sophocles to The Graduate, as a scroll through our list of productions since 1959 will show and we continue to use our small stage in ambitious and innovative ways.
