Arsenic and Old Lace

Arsenic and Old Lace

Joseph Kesselring’s classic screwball comedy, Arsenic and Old Lace remains one of the most hilarious and enduring thrillers ever written. In a quaint Brooklyn house, two loveable maiden aunts have been perfecting their elderberry wine and it now has quite a kick! Little do their ‘gentlemen callers’ suspect that soon after drinking it, they will be heading off to more exotic climes, courtesy of the sisters’ crazy nephew. Throw into the mix a plastic surgeon, an impatient new bride, a policeman who wants to be a playwright and a psychopathic Boris Karloff look-alike and you have all the ingredients for a hugely entertaining and mad-cap evening in the company of Brooklyn’s most unusual residents – the Brewsters.
