Pas de vacances pour Sherlock Holmes (2017)

Pas de vacances pour Sherlock Holmes (No Holidays for Sherlock Holmes) is a play written by Ken Ludwig (original title: The Game's Afoot, or Holmes for the Holidays) adapted in French by Indiana Loessin, performed by the Troupe du 44 company at the Sainte Cécile parish (Boulogne-Billancourt, France) from 26 june to 2 july 2017 (5 performances), starring Olivier de La Houplière as William Gillette. 1h50.

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, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears.
