Show Description:
Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Conneticut home, Sidney Bruhl, a successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a dry spell which has resulted in a string of failures and a shortage of funds. A possible break in his fortunes occurs when he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been conducting at a nearby college--a thriller which Sidney recognizes immediately as a potential Broadway hit. Sidney's plan, which he devises with his wife's help, is to offer collaboration to the student, an idea which the younger man quickly accepts. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the plot begins to tist and turn. 

Character Descriptions:

Sidney Bruhl: Male, 45-60
Once a celebrated playwright on Broadway, his recent flops and concurrent writer's block have caused him to become desperate for a hit. Witty, dashing and clever yet manical enough to murder in order to get what he wants. 
*Moderate stage combat

Myra Bruhl: Female, 40-55
A match to Sidney, she is sophisticated and upper class. She is incredibly supportive of Sidney's career and altering moods. Sweet, caring, emotional, nervous, even skittish, she suffers from a heart condition.
*Minor stage combat

Clifford Anderson: Male, 20-35
A mannerly, enthusiastic young man who is star struck by the famous, older playwright and is eagerly intent on making a name for himself with his own successful thriller. Charming and innocent, he is also quite cunning. 
*Moderate stage combat

Helga Ten Dorp: Female, 40+
A Dutch psychic from next door. She is a comedic character and quite eccentric but her magical powers are very real and potent. Knows she's a celebrity and buys into the show of her gift. Comical yet credible.

Porter Milgrim: Male, 40+ 
Professional and personal long-time friend to Sidney. A pragmatic lawyer, who also has a dirty little secret.
