The IRT closes its 42nd season with The Game’s Afoot – a very witty and glamorous comedy thriller, starring Priscilla Lindsay, IRT’s former associate artistic director and leading lady (she played in more than 60 productions during her long career at the IRT). The Game’s Afoot evolves like a mystery thriller. From the intriguing opening mini play within a play to the last surprising scene audiences will be taken for a wild and funny ride during the inspired whodunit.
Acclaimed Broadway actor of the 1930s, William Gillette, invites his Sherlock Holmes co-stars to his eccentric Connecticut mansion for a Christmas Eve celebration. When one of the guests is murdered, Gillette employs the persona of the master detective he’s made famous on the stage. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this entertaining murder-mystery farce.
