Providence Players Presents

WHERE: James Lee Community Center Theater; 2855 Annandale Road

Join your fellow Villagers for the production of “Deathtrap” by Ira Levin. “In this well-known mystery thriller, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway hits, is struggling to overcome a ‘dry’ spell which has resulted in a series of box office flops.  A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a remarkable script from a student which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway juggernaut.   Suspense mounts steadily … with such an abundance of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held enthralled until the final, startling moments of the play.”  Prior to the performance, join Villagers beginning at 6:00pm at La Granja de Oro restaurant located at 2920 Annandale Road.
