Perfect for junior and senior high school age kids. Nudity and perhaps too scary for anyone younger.

Quotes & Highlights

“The first 75 minutes are engrossing enough but they are really just a build-up to the sensational finale.” —The British Theatre Guide
“If you find that Halloween haunted houses just don’t do it for you anymore, this just might be the show for you: scarier and smarter.” —The New York Times
Check out Teller’s Daily Diary at the Play Dead website.


Teller and Todd Robbins invite Death out to play in Play Dead, a new spirit-shaking Off-Broadway show inspired by “Midnight Spook Shows,” an American institution from the 1930s to the 1970s. As the guide for the evening, Robbins draws audiences into an unknown haunted world full of frightful surprises and diabolical laughter. Although very much a theatrical work, it is hardly a typical “play,” but rather a dramatic, unnerving thriller – here and now in an “abandoned” theater, illuminated by a single ghostlight – in which audiences test their nerves and face their fears as they are surrounded by ethereal sights, sounds and even touches of the returning dead – all achieved by wry, suspenseful storytelling and uncanny stage illusions.
