Endearing audiences since 1939, Arsenic and Old Lace is a hilarious, award-winning black comedy about a quintessential dysfunctional family, The Brewster Family, descended from the Mayflower pilgrims. Mortimer Brewster pays a surprise visit to his mild-mannered, spinster aunts in their charming, chintz-filled home. He discovers that his aunts are not as mild mannered or innocent as they seem. Dark and deadly secrets spark a series of events beyond his wildest imagination. Throw in an uncle who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt, a murderous brother, who looks like a Boris Karloff, and a host of zany characters. This is a farcical, madcap story with a surprise ending that you won’t want to miss!
