"Things are not always what they seem."  

A Season of Mischief  &  Mystery
 
 

In DEATHTRAP by Ira Levin, Sidney Bruhl is a playwright who is most famous for his mystery thriller "The Murder Game." Following the debut of the latest of a series of flops, he returns to his home in East Hampton and to his wife Myra. He tells her that he's received a play called DEATHTRAP from a former student from a playwriting seminar. The play is ready for production and Sidney jokingly suggests that he murder the student and steal the play, a joke that becomes more serious when he learns, after calling the student, that no one else has read the play and no one else has a copy. Sidney invites the student up to Long Island. The student, Clifford Anderson, arrives shortly thereafter. 

And now you know the beginning of the story. The playwright Ira Levin describes DEATHTRAP as a thriller in two acts. You will be filled gasp-inducing thrills and spontaneous laughter as you watch this play unfold.

The internationally popular game is now a fun-filled musical that brings the world’s best-know suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery: who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room, and with what weapon. The audience receives forms to help them deduce the solution from clues given throughout the fun-filled evening. Three audience members choose from cards representing the potential murderers, weapons, and rooms; there are 216 possible solutions! Only one hard-nosed female detective is qualified to unravel the merry mayhem. Comic antics, witty lyrics, and a beguiling score carry the investigation from room to room. Even after the culprit confesses, a surprise twist delights the audience.
