Deathtrap By Ira Levin

  24 Oct - 25 Oct


A thriller by Ira Levin


"Deathtrap," is a five character, two act thriller so perfect in its construction that, as Sidney, the main protagonist, says, "A gifted director couldn't even hurt it."

Using his penchant for plot, and out of his desperate desire to once again be the toast of Broadway, Sidney, along with Myra, his wife, cook up an almost unthinkable scheme: They'll lure the would-be playwright to the Bruhl home, kill him, and market the sure-fire script as Sidney's own.

But shortly after Clifford arrives, it's clear that things are not what they seem! Indeed, even Helga Ten Dorp, a nosey psychic from next door, and Porter Milgram, Sidney's observant attorney, can only speculate where the line between truth and deception lies.

Julian Trevelyan: Etchings


This remarkable exhibition spans the full fifty years of Julian Trevelyan's print making career and highlights the extraordinary diversity and technical ability of this master printmaker.

Recognised as one of the most prominent and influential printmakers of the twentieth century, Royal Academician Julian Trevelyan (1910 - 1988) was an important innovator of modern printing techniques.

By the late 1950s he was Head of the Etching Department at the Royal College of Art where he taught and inspired, amongst others Norman Ackroyd, David Hockney and RB Kitaj.
