The Game’s Afoot

About the play

An hilarious, quirky and thrilling alternative to your standard holiday entertainment – breath-taking mystery and high hilarity in equal parts abound throughout.

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 castle retreat for a weekend of revelry. However, when one of the guests is murdered, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Gillette, who just happens to think he is Holmes, must assume the persona of his notorious stage character to track down the killer before the next victim appears.
