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

This show was very funny and clever. It is a typical British comedy, the kind with several doors slamming, characters coming in and out, mistaken identity, and lots of laughs.
I saw this show a year ago, and surprisingly, this was the same exact cast that I saw then, but with a different actress playing the maid! I would definitely recommend this show, especially if you are a fan of the 60's and the style and glamour of air travel.
By Marc Camoletti
Directed by Robin Armstrong
This hilarious 1960's romp, immortalized by Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis on film, has a handsome bachelor juggling three international flight attendant fiancées. In this comedy, an architect living in Paris has been successfully juggling three flight attendant fiancées with his housekeeper reluctantly playing romantic air-traffic controller as they fly in and out of his swank bachelor pad. But when an old school pal visits, things get rather turbulent. Schedules change, flights are delayed and chaos ensues in this whirl of mayhem and matchmaking.
This classic farce was written in the 1960’s by French playwright Marc Camoletti. An English translation became a smash hit in London’s West End, and a recent Broadway revival brought it to the attention of an American audience.
