A farce by Ken Ludwig

The Game’s Afoot; or Holmes for The Holidays

The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering, farcical mystery. Ken Ludwig's The Game’s Afoot; or Holmes for the Holidays will be on stage at CentreStage Theatre in time 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 mansion for a weekend of revelry. When one of the guests turns up dead, the festivities in this isolated house of hidden rooms and state-of-the art gadgets quickly turn dangerous. Gillette assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes to track down the killer before the next victim appears. This play will keep you laughing and trying to figure out whodunit until the final bow.
