Langley High School's Saxon Stage is excited to share an amazing work by the popular playwright Ken Ludwig. In this mystery/thriller, which has delighted audiences nationwide, it is April 1922 and the cast of William Gillette’s latest Broadway revival of Sherlock Holmes has assembled for a weekend of relaxation at his magnificent medieval castle on a bluff overlooking the Connecticut River. For entertainment, actor-manager, playwright, and heart-throb William Gillette, best known for his 30-year portrayal of the famous crime sleuth Sherlock Holmes, has arranged a séance. Now the scene is set for his greatest role. Someone is trying to murder Gillette and he suspects it is one of his guests. Intrepid, eccentric, and wildly romantic, Gillette plans to solve the case himself à la Sherlock Holmes.
