'The Game's Afoot' or 'Holmes for the Holidays' by Ken Ludwig
Christmas comes ealry with this delightfully funny mystery!
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. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. 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 appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.
The Milton Players Theatre Group start their new season with bang with this hilariously mysterious comedy, the first of three new shows after last seasons record breaking blockbusters!
