Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members for a weekend of revelry. But, when one of the guests turns up dead, the festivities quickly turn dangerous, and it’s up to Gillette himself to track down the killer before the next victim appears.

Additional staff include:  Jonathon Offutt, set designer, Rona Leber, costume designer and Keith Bruce, lighting designer. Taylor Brown will stage manage this production.

The cast members are Samuel Copeland as William Gillette; Connor Snow as Martha Gillette; Jacob Moak as Felix Geisel; Annie Barker as Madge Geisel; Mikah Thomas as Simon Bright; Caroline Lamb as Aggie Wheeler; Shaundarius Hardman as Inspector Goring; and Lari Leber as Daria Chase.
