Last chance to catch mystery

Peninsula Productions’ The Games Afoot wraps up Sunday

There are still a few chances left for mystery fans to see Peninsula Productions hit summer presentation, The Game’s Afoot.

The Canadian premiere of the show, by popular American playwright Ken Ludwig, continues until Sunday (July 28) at the Coast Capital Playhouse, 1532 Johnston Rd.

There’s a high fun quotient to the witty and fanciful murder mystery/comedy, helmed by Peninsula Productions’ artistic director Wendy Bollard.

Set in 1936, The Game’s Afoot revolves around the stabbing death of a guest staying at the Connecticut castle of Broadway actor William Gillette, original star of the stage adaptation of Sherlock Holmes.

Determined to prove himself a great sleuth in real life, Gillette takes a page out of Holmes’ book and sets out to track down the killer before another victim appears.

The well-received show features strong performances from Ben Odberg as Gillette, and cast members Lori Tych, David Quast, Val Dearden, Michelle Collier, Mahara Sinclaire, Rebekah McEwen and Everett Shea.

Tickets ($18-23) are available at 604-536-7536, at the Playhouse box office, Thursday through Saturday, 1-5 p.m., or online at www.whiterockplayers.ca
