Cockpit in Court Summer Theatre, in residence at CCBC Essex, will perform Ken Ludwig’s The Game’s Afoot June 10 – 25. All performances will be held at the Robert and Eleanor Romadka College Center, Cabaret Theatre at CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Boulevard.

It is December 1936, and 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. Audiences are treated to a crackling mystery with equal parts dramatic thrills and high hilarity.

Ken Ludwig's The Game's Afoot is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.

June 10, 16, 17, 23, 24 at 8 p.m.
