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

- Visit playwright Christopher Shinn's website.
This gripping and powerful drama tells the story of Kelly, a young therapist whose husband died in Iraq, and his twin brother who unexpectedly shows up at her doorstep one year later.
Dying City marks the directorial debut of Dallas Theater Center’s Brierley Resident Acting Company member Lee Trull. Lee previously starred in STT’s award winning and critically acclaimed production of Scapino. He also serves as an artistic consultant for STT.
“Second Thought Theatre is among the most exciting and provocative theater companies in Dallas,” says Trull. “They are producing top notch, high quality work and I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to direct such an exciting play with this incredible cast.”
Dying City will star STT Ensemble Member Rhett Henckel (STT’s Earth and Sky) in the dual role of twin brothers Craig and Peter. Making her STT debut is Grace Heid in the role of Kelly.
“Rhett Henckel and Grace Heid are fresh faces in the Dallas theatre community. And although many will know Lee’s work as a playwright and actor, audiences will get to see a new side of Lee as an artist with this show,” says STT Co-Artistic Director Chris LaBove. “This has been a pivotal year for Second Thought Theatre and Dying City is the perfect play to finish out our season on the right note.”
Christopher Shinn received the 2005 Obie Award in playwrighting and a Robert Chelsey Award in 2002. Dying City had its world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2006 and played at New York's Lincoln Center Theater in 2007.
