The Marc Steiner Show

World of the Play: The Rise and Fall of the Thriller

mDecember 24, 2014 – Segment 2

It’s the latest installment of our World of the Play series, where we take deeper looks at issues raised by the plays of Everyman Theatre. This segment is called “The Rise and Fall of the Thriller,” and is inspired by Everyman Theatre’s current production: Deathtrap. What makes a thriller thrilling?

Our panelists are: Linda DeLibero, Director of Film and Media Studies at Johns Hopkins University; Hollis Robbins, PhD., Chair of the Department of Humanities at Peabody Conservatory and Director of the Center for Africana Studies at Hopkins’ Krieger School of Arts and Sciences; and Lewis Shaw, Resident Fight Choreographer at Everyman.
