The Game's Afoot by Ken Ludwig

There were thrills and laughter aplenty in the Allerton Players’ production of‘The Game’s Afoot’ by Ken Ludwig. The play was set on Christmas Eve in 1936 and was a comedy whodunnit for all the family. Hollywood star William Gillette has invited the cast of his play to spend the Christmas holidays with him at his castle in Connecticut, and, when one of the guests is murdered, he dons the deerstalker and pipe of his alter ego, Sherlock Holmes, to find the killer.

With all the elements of a classic whodunnit – an isolated house in the middle of a storm, a group of eccentric suspects who all have a motive, and an Agatha Christie style detective - and a very funny script, it proved very popular with audiences.
