It is Christmas season and he is soon joined by his other fellow cast members for a weekend of festivities. He is also accompanied by his mother, a controversial columnist and an odd police detective.
As the evening progresses, unforeseen mayhem ensues and one of the guests winds up dead. As it turns out, there have been a series of mysterious deaths and Gillette suspects that the killer is one of the guests. He dons Sherlock Holmes' persona to track down the killer before another of the guests drops dead. The danger of this endeavor is coupled with hilarity as surprises lurk at every turn of the story.
The upcoming play will be staged at the Drury Lane Theater. The unique and versatile facility will play host to an extraordinary cast of actors that will keep you absorbed throughout the performance.
