What Would Sherlock Holmes Do? It’s a Mystery!

Location: Actors Guild of Parkersburg
Time: 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
724 Market Street
Parkersburg, West Virginia

It is December 1936, and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. It is then up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

Happy Homicide! 

A murderously funny whodunit from Ken Ludwig, the author of Lend Me A Tenor, Crazy For You, Moon Over Buffalo, and Leading Ladies! 

Winner of the 2012 Mystery Writers of America Edgar Allen Poe Award, Best Play
