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.
"An inspired whodunit…a snappy, clever drawingroom mystery. There are twists in playwright Ken Ludwig's The Game's Afoot that cause the audience to gasp."
– The Cleveland Plain Dealer
"The Game's Afoot is Murderously Funny!"
– Broadway World Cleveland
"From the intriguing opening mini play within a play to the surprise last scene a split second before the curtain falls, The Game's Afoot gives you everything you love about great live theater. Billed as a comedic thriller, you will find yourself swept along for a wild and funny ride."
– Cleveland Examiner
