Arsenic and Old Lace
Eccentric sisters Abby and Martha Brewster are charming, charitable and a little old fashioned. Along with their nephew, Teddy – who thinks he is the 26th President of the United States- the pair welcome lonely, older gentlemen into their house as boarders. But as their newly engaged nephew, Mortimer, soon discovers, the house and the sisters hold secrets that threaten the peace of their quiet Brooklyn neighborhood. Arsenic & Old Lace is one of the great classic comedy thrillers of American theatre. With a large cast of unusual characters, plenty of laughs and edge-of-your-seat suspense, it is no wonder that it remains a regional and community theatre favorite.
Play contains suspense, occasional loud noises, comic violence and some mild language.
