Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring


About the show

Arsenic & Old Lace" is a farcical black comedy revolving around Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family as he debates whether to marry the woman he loves. With two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men, a brother who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt, another brother who looks like Boris Karloff, assorted policemen and a plastic surgeon called Doctor Einstein, this is a cracking farce that will be guaranteed to be enormous fun.
