Library to host theater trip to see murder mystery

McHENRY – A mystery set in the 1930s will be the focus of the next theater trip arranged by the McHenry Public Library. The trip will include a performance of “The Game’s Afoot” on Oct. 11 at the Drury Lane Theater, as well as dinner and transportation to and from the theater.

The show is set in December 1936 at the home of a Broadway star known for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes. The actor has invited his fellow cast members to the Connecticut castle for a weekend, but when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the actor needs to channel Holmes to solve the crime.

The cost for the evening is $77. Registration must be completed by Sept. 15 in order to get the group discount and can be made in person at the library, 809 N. Front St., McHenry. A McHenry library card is not required to attend. Tickets are nonrefundable.

This program is funded in part by the Friends of the McHenry Public Library and is for adults ages 18 and older.

For more information about this program, go to the library’s online events calendar at www.mchenrylibrary.org or call the library at 815-385-0036.
