Arsenic and Old Lace
by Joseph Kesselring
A smash-hit dark comedy that the New York Times called “so funny that none of us will ever forget it.” Meet the Brewster sisters, two charming ladies who help elderly gentlemen find a peaceful and final resting place by giving them a lethal elderberry wine. Add to the madcap mix three nephews, one of which thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt. Toss in a policeman, sprinkle with a few corpses and you have the ingredients for a wild and nutty fruitcake - and one of the most hilarious and enduring comedies in American theatre.
