By Ken Ludwig

November 4, 5, 10**, 11, 12, 13*, 17**, 18, 19, 20*, 2016

It’s 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. 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. Winner of the 2012 Mystery Writers of America Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Play!

The talented cast includes Sommer Farhat, Shirley Sacks Kirby, Rhonda Fisher, Michael Ray, Blythe Reed, Neal Thorburn, Christopher Watson, and Vanessa Warner under the direction of Tracy Anne Olin.
