Arsenic and Old Lace

Oct 13-15 and 20-22, 2006.

Arsenic and Old Lace is a dark comedy play by American playwright Joseph Kesselring, written in 1939. The play is a farce revolving around Mortimer Brewster, a theatre-hating drama critic who must deal with his crazy family and local police as he debates whether to go through with marrying the woman he loves. His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering old men by poisoning them with arsenic, a brother who believes he's Teddy Roosevelt, and a criminally murderous brother who - due to botched plastic surgery to evade the authorities - now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff
