SYNOPSIS

A Sherlock Holmes Christmas Comedy
by Ken Ludwig

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.

The Game’s Afoot has never been produced by TCT or HHT.

KEN LUDWIG’S THE GAME’S AFOOT is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. (www.concordtheatricals.com)
