    Hugely popular on stage and screen, this dark comedy thriller is a perfect blend of schemes, plot-twists, and outrageous humor.

    Once famous playwright, Sidney Bruhl is fresh out of ideas with a string of failures and a shortage of cash to prove it. A change in fortune arrives in the form of a script, sent by a former student, with all the makings of a Broadway hit. The opportunity to steal the script and pass it off as his own may be too tempting for Sidney to ignore.
