In this world premiere comedy thriller by Ken Ludwig, we meet famed stage actor William Gillette at his Connecticut castle, recovering from an attempt on his life following a performance of his renowned play, Sherlock Holmes. It’s Christmas Eve, and much to his mother Martha’s chagrin, William invites fellow actors, Aggie & Simon and Felix & Madge, over for the holiday weekend. His elaborate home, filled with gadgets and hidden passageways, becomes the setting for a murder, and Gillette must use the Sherlock Holmes crime-solving skills he made famous on stage to catch the culprit. Will Gillette uncover the secrets his guests are hiding? Will he discover who the murderer is before he/she claims another victim? Will his guests ever be able to drink eggnog again?
