Written by Ira Levin
Sidney Bruhl would do anything to publish the next great play. He would even kill for it. This dark comedy thriller will have audiences laughing one moment and screaming in terror the next as Sidney discovers he may not be the only murderer in the room. DEATHTRAP provides twists, turns, shocks and surprises that have held audiences rapt since its 1978 Broadway debut, where it set a record for longest-running comedy-thriller.
“Two-thirds a thriller and one-third a devilishly clever comedy… Suspend your disbelief and be delighted. Scream a little. It’s good for you.” —Cue Magazine
“…a most agreeable thriller — handsomely funny, totally undemanding, often, thrill-gaspingly surprising.” — The New York Times
