CAPE MAY, N.J. — Nearly 100 mystery lovers joined the famous Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson in the challenge of unraveling this year’s Sherlockian-style mystery in Cape May, N.J., during Sherlock Holmes Weekend: “The Wake at the Wedding,” presented March 15–17, 2019 by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC).

The play unfolds over the weekend with participants gathering Friday evening at the Inn of Cape May, 7 Ocean St., and the play begins, followed by searching for clues during Saturday’s Search for Clues Tour, shown here, where the play’s characters join participants and stalk the streets of Cape May, making various stops at beautiful Victorian locations to uncover clues. All is then revealed on Sunday at The Inn of Cape May.

The Grand Prize Winner was a veteran Sherlock Holmes Weekend attendee of 19 years, but a first time winner, Karen Bohme, of North Wildwood, N.J., who won tickets to return in 2020 to help unravel a new mystery, along with $100 in cash.

A husband and wife team earned the well-loved honor of “Clueless Wonder,” those whose clue-finding was the least successful! Frank and Marianne Solak, from Ossining, N.Y., won $50 in cash.

This year’s play was written by Emily Pruna. If you missed this weekend, there are two more this year: Oct. 25–27 and Nov. 1–3, 2019. Join in next time for this exciting Sherlock adventure! For more information visit capemaymac.org.
