About the play

The play is set in the isolated New England home of thriller playwright Sydney Bruhl and the action centres around a new play, Deathtrap, a new thriller by the unknown dramatist Clifford Anderson. Anderson has sent this new script to Sydney for his comments -- or has he?

Without a success for many years Sydney plots with his reluctant wife Myra about how best to plagiarise Deathtrap and when Clifford arrives to discuss his play events start to take a sinister turn.

The play was first presented at The Music Box Theatre in New York City on February 26, 1978 and then at the Garrick Theatre in London on October 26, 1978. In the latter production Denis Quilley played the part of Sydney Bruhl.
