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.

This show contains violence and limited use of strong language. We encourage you to use your judgment based on your child’s age and maturity level.

Audience Reviews

“Kept you guessing. Multiple twists and turns, and excellent acting.” – Garden Theatre Guest

“The Garden Theatre never disappoints. Another fantastic production.” – Garden Theatre Guest

“Great set, great lighting, great sound, fabulous play, great performance. Super enjoyable!” – Garden Theatre Guest

“About the time you think you know what’s going to happen next, it doesn’t. Full of surprises!” – Garden Theatre Guest

“Deathtrap is preposterously funny! Masterful performances from the cast, stunning stage set, and period appropriate costumes that evoked the time in which the story is set.” – Garden Theatre Guest

Critic Reviews

“At the Garden Theatre, “Deathtrap” lands plenty of laughs and succeeds in thrilling with the plot’s twists and turns…  there’s still life in the old thriller yet. Be prepared to laugh — and gasp — in equal measure.” – Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel

“Hilarity and homicide ensue, but in ways you won’t see coming, with so many plot twists and misdirects that even an audience with ESP might gasp, as the Garden’s sold-out house did all night long.” – Aaron Wallace, BroadwayWorld

Orlando Sentinel Review: At Garden Theatre, aging ‘Deathtrap’ can still find the thrills

BWW Review: The Nonstop Twists and Turns in Garden Theatre’s DEATHTRAP Are Both Trick and Treat
