We’re excited to announce our fall 2021 production of the delightful murder mystery/farce/thriller, Ken Ludwig’s The Game’s Afoot: Or Holmes for the Holidays.

It is December 1936, and (real life) Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut home for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated fun-palace of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous, not to mention hilarious. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim succumbs. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit

set during the Christmas holidays.
