Arsenic and Old Lace

by Joseph Kesselring

Rated PG
Main Stage

Meet the Brewsters: spinster sisters, Abby and Martha, dedicated to charity, family, and poisoning lonely, old men with their homemade arsenic-laced elderberry wine. And who can forget their loving nephews? Teddy, who thinks he’s Theodore Roosevelt, Jonathan (a Boris Karloff look-alike psychopath), and Mortimer, a likable drama critic who navigates his homicidal family, his fiancée, and the Brooklyn PD. Christy Brandt and Annie Butler star in this classic, smash-hit dark comedy that the New York Times called “so funny that none of us will ever forget it.”
