Recently produced the show to rave reviews. The language used in the text is a bit dated, but if you have two solid actors that really drive the action, it moves along nicely. The play has a great blend of comedy, suspense and some fantastic plot twists. It is a "crowd pleaser" for sure! Also note, the script only requires TWO actors, not five as it is states above. I won't get into specifics why 5 characters are listed, but let's just say some people aren't who they may appear to be. I would highly recommend "Sleuth" to any prospective producers who have two actors and a director who are ready to shine!
