A Christmas mystery posted on 12/01/2021

Kelly Lazenby, director of the December Nutz-n-Boltz Theater Company’s production, noted that a play with Sherlock Holmes has always been at the top of the list. This month, the time has come with “The Game’s Afoot or Holmes for the Holidays,” by Ken Ludwig.

“It’s funny, it’d madcap, it’s a little bit of a murder mystery and it’s Christmas,” Lazenby said. “There’s a little bit of everything.”

The story features a group of actors celebrating Christmas together at the home of actor William Gillette in Connecticut. Gillette was a real person, an actor who met Arthur Conan Doyle, wrote a play based on the Sherlock Holmes adventures and then played Sherlock for more than 20 years on Broadway.

In the play, Gillette must recover after being shot in the final show of the season, which also featured a stagehand dying. When the cast gathers at Gillette's house, they are joined by theater critic Daria Chase, who ends up murdered later that night, offering Gillette a chance to try his hand as Sherlock Holmes for real.

Lazenby noted that the show is running for just two weekends, but each weekend will include a Saturday matinee in order to offer eight performances. COVID-19 protocols will be in place, including masks, but Lazenby added that those haven’t been a big challenge for the theater.

“It hasn’t really been too much of a hassle, people are pretty happy to be going somewhere,” she said.

NNB’s production of “The Game’s Afoot or Holmes for the Holidays,” by Ken Ludwig will run from Friday, Dec. 10 through Sunday, Dec. 19, at the Boring Grange, 27861 Grange Street in Boring. Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Fridays, 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and 3 p.m. on Sundays.

Ticket pricing is from $12-15 and the show is appropriate for all ages, but best enjoyed if over 10 years old. There are special group rates for parties of ten or more and concessions will be served. For more information, or to make reservations, call 503-593-1295 or visit nnbtheater.com.
