Written by Ken Ludwig

Holmes for the Holidays

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.

The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.
