It’s April 1922 and the cast of William Gillette’s latest Broadway revival of “Sherlock Holmes” has assembled for a weekend of relaxation at his magnificent medieval castle overlooking the Connecticut River. Gillette, an actor-manager, playwright and heart-throb known for his portrayal of the famous crime sleuth Sherlock Holmes, has arranged a séance. Now the scene is set for his greatest role. Someone is trying to murder him and he suspects it’s one of his guests. Intrepid, eccentric and wildly romantic, Gillette plans to solve the case himself as Sherlock Holmes. What follows is a clever whodunit packed with both suspense and laughter.
“A Sherlock Holmes whodunit kind of mystery packed with suspects and tinged with suspense and laughter,” says The London Times.
