Master of comedy and mayhem Ken Ludwig (Lend Me a Tenor) fills his latest play with double-crosses, triple-crosses, gunplay, lies, deceit, disguise, and sex. What do you expect? They're actors. As iconic American actor William Gillette takes his bows after playing Sherlock Holmes at the Palace Theatre, a shot rings out, wounding him in the arm. While recuperating at home, Gillette invites his co-stars to his elaborate Connecticut mansion for a Christmas Eve celebration. When one of the guests is found murdered, this labyrinth comedy-mystery-thriller unfolds in glorious 1930s style.
