Ken Ludwig's farcical "whodunit" is making its Minnesota State Mankato premiere.

Minnesota State University, Mankato Department of Theatre & Dance News Release, 2-8-2017

MANKATO – Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Department of Theatre & Dance is back with a farcical “whodunit” in Ken Ludwig’s “The Game’s Afoot.”

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. Then it’s up to Gillette himself to track down the killer. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit.

“The Game’s Afoot,” a Minnesota State Mankato premiere, runs 7:30 p.m. Feb. 16-18 and 23-25; and 2 p.m. Feb. 25-26 in the Ted Paul Theatre, Earley Center for Performing Arts.

Tickets are $16 regular; $14 for seniors ages 65 and older, children under 16 and groups of 15 or more; and $11 for Minnesota State Mankato students.
