October 20-23 & 27-30
Written by Joseph Kesselring
Directed by Scott Edgar
Mortimer Brewster's engagement announcement is upended by the discovery of a corpse in the attic window seat. He runs to tell his aunts before they find it, only to learn they aren't just aware, but they killed him! Between his aunts' penchant for poison wine, a brother who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, and another brother using plastic surgery to hide from the police it'll be a miracle if Mortimer makes it to his wedding. Arsenic and Old Lace is a classic dark comedy. There are hilarious scenes of lights blinking on & off, bodies moving from the window seat to the cellar, and accusations & threats back and forth.
All evening performances begin at 7:30 PM.
Sunday matinees begin at 2:00 PM.
