Old Town Playhouse, in Traverse City, presents The Game’s Afoot, running from January 17, 2014 to February 1, 2014.

Murder, mayhem, drama and dastardly deeds abound in this Sherlock Holmes-inspired comedy from Ken Ludwig, the author of Lend Me a Tenor and Moon Over Buffalo. Billed as a comedy thriller you will find yourself swept along for a wild and funny ride.” – Cleveland Fine Arts Examiner.

It is 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. Then it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays. Buy tickets here!
