What happens when you mix comedy with a thriller and spice it up with unexpected twists? You cook up a play called “Deathtrap.” Stirring in only five characters, they are utilized all throughout the play. Using a single setting was crucial to the play. Many of the props were talked about early on in the first scenes, then used later on. The viewers were able to memorize the single setting very thoroughly.

The five actors were Sidney Bruhl, Myra Bruhl, Clifford Anderson, Helga ten Dorp and Porter Milgrim. The main character, Sidney Bruhl, was a highly known play writer who was having a dry season of dropped writings and a hard time creating new material. Myra, Sidney’s wife, thought it would be smart to invite the student who sent in his extraordinary play called “Deathtrap.” Sid agreed but planned to murder Clifford to steal the play and author it out as his own.

The other two actors were used a bit less than Sid, Cliff, and Myra. Those two were Helga ten Dorp and Porter Milgrim. Helga was a psychic who was the Bruhl’s neighbor. She was able to tell the future but would sometimes be reversed or incorrect. Porter was Sidney’s attorney.

The play is filled with roller coaster like twists and turns for the audience. No matter how hard you attempt to guess what happens, there is no way you’d successfully figure anything out. The author had an incredible time mixing comedy with twists. Giving the audience suspense and laughter spiced up the plot incredibly. I believe if you ever get the chance to go to this comedy-thriller, you will enjoy every minute of it.
