Post Mortem
By Ken Ludwig

This clever thriller by Ken Ludwig, the author of Lend Me A Tenor and Sullivan & Gilbert, has delighted audiences nationwide. Actor/manager and playwright William Gillette, best known for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in his hugely successful adaptation of Conan Doyle, has invited his sister and the cast of his latest revival of the play for a weekend at his magnificent pseudo–medieval castle on a bluff overlooking the Connecticut River. For entertainment, Gillette has arranged a sèance. Now the scene is set for his greatest role. Someone is trying to murder Gillette and he suspects it is one of his guests. Intrepid, eccentric Gillette plans to solve the case himself a la Sherlock Holmes.

Postmortem was performed at the Cherokee Civic Theatre in 2008 on February 22, 23, 29 and March 1 at 7:00 pm, and matinees which were held on February 24 and March 2 at 2:00 pm.
