It's December 1936 and stage star William Gillette, an iconic actor admired all over the world for his role as Sherlock Holmes, is shot onstage during a show. While he recuperates, he invites his fellow cast members to his Connecticut castle for a lively Christmas weekend of fun. But, when one of his guests is found stabbed to death, the fun turns dangerous. It's up to Gillette, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to find the killer before someone else is killed. It's written by Tony Award winner Ken Ludwig (Lend me a Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo).

He has won two Laurence Olivier Awards, holds three Tony Award nominations, two Helen Hayes Awards, the Edgar Award and the SETC Distinguished Career Award.
