Arsenic and Old Lace

   Directed by:  Mary Thompson & Skye Westendorf

Production:  October 7, 8, 9, 13, 14 & 15: 2011

We meet the charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously "acceptable" roomers; the antics of their brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and the activities of the other brother—these require no further description or amplification here. Mortimer Brewster – a role made famous on film by Cary Grant – initially thinks his biggest problem is whether or not to get married.  But that’s nothing when he learns that his brother is crazy, another relative is crazier yet and his aunts … well, you’re unlikely to meet a sweeter pair of psychopaths!  The cast won’t just tickle your funny bones – they might bury them in their basement, too.
