Arsenic and Old Lace

Image Picker for Section 0

by Joseph Kesselring

creepy old house



You thought your family was crazy? Meet the Brewsters.


Mortimer Brewster discovers his seemingly sweet old aunts have a nasty habit of poisoning lonely old men with a glass of elderberry wine laced with "arsenic, strychnine, and just a pinch of cyanide".
Add to the mix Mortimer’s crazy brothers Teddy, who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt, and Jonathan, a homicidal fugitive who looks like Frankenstein’s monster thanks to a botched plastic surgery.  The resulting chaos as Mortimer tries to wrangle his outrageous family makes for an uproarious farce, filled with laugh-out-loud hilarity.
