Arsenic and Old LaceArsenic & Old Lace

Theatre critic Mortimer Brewster’s charming and charitable aunts have an unusual ministry – helping lonely boarders to their heavenly rest by serving poisoned elderberry wine! This famous 1941 dark comedy features a nephew who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, a gangster on the run and unsuspecting police officers dropping in on the mayhem.

“Arsenic and Old Lace” is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
