Bag&Baggage Productions Proudly Presents...

The Game’s Afoot, or Holmes for the Holidays

12/05/19 - 12/23/19 • The Vault Theater & Event Space

by Ken Ludwig

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 is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. Winner of the 2012 Mystery Writers of America Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Play, and featuring a cast of B&B favorites directed by Resident Artist Kymberli Colbourne, the danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.
