Ken Ludwig's The Game's Afoot or Holmes for the Holidays

It is December 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 to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry.

When one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous.

It is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears.

The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

THE GAME’S AFOOT won the Edgar Allen Poe Award (the “Edgar”), awarded by the Mystery Writers of America, as the Best Mystery Play of 2012.
