SHOW AND CHARACTER SYNOPSIS:

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.

Gillette’s dotty mother, elegant though a bit foggy, Martha never shies from a fight. Martha is loyal to Gillette and his friends.

Wry and outspoken, Madge, like her husband Felix, is a lifelong theatrical. Is game for anything, but back her in a corner and she will come out swinging.
-Aggie Wheeler Female 25-30
Bright eyed and bushy-tailed, Aggie is the ingenue of the company. Recently married to Simon.
-Daria Chase Female 40-50
Glamorous and gorgeous, Daria is the theatrical critic we all love to hate. Biting, bitchy and utterly charming. You can’t help but like Daria despite the terrible things she writes.
