Two Performances Remain for CCT Comedy

The Caribbean Community Theater production of the mystery-comedy "The Game’s Afoot – or Holmes for the Holidays," by Ken Ludwig, concludes Friday and Saturday.

Performances are at 8 p.m.

The play tells the story of Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play "Sherlock Holmes." He has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is killed, 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.
