Kearney Community Theatre presents:
The Game’s Afoot, or Holmes for the Holidays
By Ken Ludwig
Directed by Alex Schwarz

Thursday December 9, 2021 – Sunday December 19, 2021
Thursdays through Sundays (Matinees on Sundays)

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. 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. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays. Suitable for older youth and adults.

“From the intriguing opening mini play-within-a-play to the surprise last scene a split second before final curtain, The Game’s Afoot gives you everything you love about great live theatre. Billed as a comedy thriller, you will find yourself swept along for a wild and funny ride.” – Cleveland Examiner
