What would you do for a killer idea?

Acclaimed but cash-strapped writer Sidney Bruhl has an exceptional new thriller in his hands. There's just one problem: It was written by one of his students. Sydney and his wife quickly come up with a solution -- offer to collaborate with the young writer, and they can split the profits 50/50. No need to consider more … lethal solutions.

Dripping with twists and turns, Ira Levin's Tony-nominated play is both a spellbinding thriller and a devilishly clever comedy. You won't know whether the next sound out of your mouth will be a laugh or a scream. [Contains mature content]
