A washed-up playwright tries to break his writer’s block by stealing a student’s brilliant idea in Big Idea Theatre’s production of Deathtrap. With plenty of twists and turns (not to mention a room full of weapons), Deathtrap is a frequently produced show. But the chemistry of Big Idea regulars Benjamin T. Ismail (Clifford) and Melissa Rae Frago (Myra), joined by Wade Lucas (Sidney), makes this production worth the trip to the theater. F, Sa 8pm; Su 2:30pm. Through 6/19. $12-$15. Big Idea Theatre, 1616 Del Paso Blvd.; (916) 960-3036; www.bigideatheatre.com.
