ARSENIC AND OLD LACE Set for A.D. Players, Now thru 10/6
Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring will run tonight, September 4 - October 6, 2013 at A.D. Players.
A madcap dark comedy that is as funny as it is famous! The elderly Brewster sisters are the town darlings, but they have a little secret. Their nephew Mortimer discovers they are 'helping' lonely gentlemen boarders to early graves by way of homemade, arsenic-laced wine! Add a brother who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, a criminal on the run, and the girl Mortimer wants to marry, and you have a recipe for hilarity.
