Fresh from a run of Agnes of God dates in White Rock, Peninsula Productions is quickly turning its attention to its next play, The Game's Afoot.
A cast of five women and three men is needed for the fast-paced comedy/thriller, written by Ken Ludwig. The Canadian debut of the play will be staged by Peninsula Productions from July 10 to 28, with auditions happening Monday, March 18.
Director Wendy Bollard "can't wait to cast the show and start working on it."
The play is set in December 1936. 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," Bollard said.
