‘The Game’s Afoot’ for the Wayland Players
Last month I gave you some tempting clues as to the nature of the play The Wayland Players are performing in the Queens Hall on November 26th to 28th.
I can now reveal that in ‘The Game’s Afoot’ by Ken Ludwig you will be transported back in time to Christmas 1936 to the riverside mansion of leading actor William Gillette, who is world famous for his dramatic portrayal of Sherlock Holmes.
When the weekend of revelry planned for his fellow cast members is rudely interrupted by an unwelcome arrival and then by the stabbing of one of the guests, Gillette assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes to track down the killer before there are more deaths.
There are enough twists and turns in this inspired comedy thriller to keep you intrigued and laughing throughout.
Tickets, priced £7, are available from Adcocks on Watton High Street. We look forward to seeing you.
