A classic whodunnit with a twist...

It’s December 1936 and West End star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, has invited his fellow cast members to his Sussex mansion 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.

Part of the Barn’s 2017-2018 Season.
