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. Then it’s 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.
From the intriguing opening mini-play to the last scene a split second before the final curtain, The Game’s Afoot is a funny thriller ready to take you along for the ride.

Directed by Janet Palmer

Four redneck gas station attendants and a pair of waitressing sisters — who address their patrons at the Double Cupp diner with soothing pet names like "baby" and "sugar" — sing a collection of radio-worthy country ballads and rock tunes as they go about their simple lives off Highway 57 located somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, North Carolina. The gas station doesn’t appear to get a whole lot of business. Still, they haven’t found time to repair Jim’s uncle’s defunct Winnebago because they are too busy filling the long days by making music. They also flirt with the women at the diner down the road a spell. The sisters Prudie Cupp and Rhetta Cupp serve up homemade pies and generously poured coffee. These big-hearted gals also help out in the music making, using whatever pot or pan comes to hand to provide the percussion. This is a musical tribute to life by the roadside!
