It’s December 1936 and stage star William Gillette, an iconic actor admired all over the world for his role as Sherlock Holmes, is shot onstage during a show. While he recuperates, he invites his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a lively Christmas weekend of fun. But, when one of his guests is found stabbed to death, the fun turns dangerous. It’s up to Gillette, as his assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to find the killer before someone else is killed. The hilarity is non-stop in what is a glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays! Oh, did we mention it’s written by Tony Award winner Ken Ludwig (Lend me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo).
