Arsenic and Old Lace

Arsenic and Old Lace

By Joseph Kesselring

July 10,11 17,18,19 24,25 30,31, August 2
Preview July 9 & Matinees July 19 & August 2

*PLEASE NOTE: August 1 performance canceled and added a performance on July 30.

In this farcical black comedy, we meet the Brewster family, descended from the "Mayflower," and composed of two charming spinster aunts who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously "acceptable" roomers; their brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and another brother, Mortimer, a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry.

Directed by Robin Frome
