The Game’s Afoot; or Holmes for the Holidays

The Games afoot

The Games afoot

By Ken Ludwig
Directed by Paul Sztelma






From the writer of “Lend Me A Tenor”
and “Shakespeare in Hollywood” comes this slick
and funny thriller/farce!
It’s Christmas Eve, 1936 and Broadway star
William Gillette, admired the world over for
his leading role in the play “Sherlock Holmes”,
has invited his fellow cast members (and his
mother) to his sumptuous art-deco apartment
for a weekend of revelry. But when one of
the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities
in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors
quickly turn dangerous.
It’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the
persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down
the killer before the next victim appears. The
dangerous hilarity (and hilarious danger!) are
non-stop in this glittering whodunit.
