"The Game's Afoot" is set in 1936 at the Connecticut estate of William Gillette, the celebrated actor/playwright who performed as Sherlock Holmes for years. When a guest is murdered during a Christmas party with his colorful theater troupe in attendance, Gillette fancies himself just the man to solve the crime. Ludwig received the Edgar Award for Best Play of 2012, presented by the Mystery Writers of America.
Lead producer of "The Game's Afoot" is Theatre Fellowship veteran Lucy Cabrera, who produced 2014's "Nude With Violin" by Noel Coward. Returning to direct the show is Doug Paulson, who helmed last year's successful production of "Enchanted April."
