Winner of the 2012 Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Play, Ken Ludwig's The Game's Afoot (or Holmes for the Holidays) blends comedy, mystery and mistletoe to great effect. It's December 1936, and world-renowned actor William Gillette, best known for originating the role of Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his castle in Connecticut for a holiday weekend of good old-fashioned carousing. But it's not long before one of the guests is discovered ... dead. Now it's up to Gillette himself to live up to his onscreen persona and identify the killer before he strikes again in this hilarious whodunit set during the Christmas season. Learn More
