Seemingly comfortably ensconced in his charming Connecticut
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 twist and turn
with devilish cleverness, and with such an abundance
of thrills and laughter, that audiences will be held
enthralled until the final, startling moments of the
play. (Synopsis from Dramatists Play Service, Inc.).
