From Dramatists Publishing Company: "A minty green pill - medication or sugar? Louise is working on a placebo-controlled study of a new female arousal drug. As her work in the lab navigates the blurry lines between perception and deception, the same questions pertain more and more to her life at home. With uncanny insight and unparalleled wit, Melissa James Gibson's affectionate comedy examines slippery truths and the power of crossed fingers."

This ingeniously constructed play offers gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter. Dealing with the devious machinations of a writer of thrillers whose recent offerings have been flops, and who is prepared to go to any lengths to improve his fortunes, DEATHTRAP provides twists and turns and sudden shocks in such abundance that audiences will be held spellbound until the very last moment. Join the Erie Playhouse for the first two performances of DEATHTRAP for Premiere weekend! Reserve your tickets online on the Erie Playhouse's website.
Admission for all On Campus productions is $5. The only On Campus production that we will be taking ticket reservations is PLACEBO, which you reserve by clicking the red reservation button at the top of this page.

Auditions for ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS slated for Feb 19 & 20
ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS - adapted from Carlo Goldoni's Italian Comedy by Richard Bean and Grant Olding (Samuel French) - Directed by Alaina Manchester
Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from the dad of his fiancee. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who has been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Holed up at The Cricketers Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple.
Based on the classic Italian comedy The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, in this new English version by prizewinning playwright Richard Bean, with songs and music by Grant Olding, sex food, and money are high on the agenda. One Man, Two Guvnors opened at the National Theatre 17th May 2011 to critical acclaim, before transferring to the West End and embarking on a successful UK tour. It is also shortlisted for the 2011 Evening Standard Theatre Best New Play and the Best Night Out Awards.
