ARSENIC AND OLD LACE is one of the American theatre's funniest comedies. Drama critic Mortimer Brewster is engaged to the lovely Elaine Harper, but will she fit in with his "unusual" family? Abby and Martha Brewster are known throughout Brooklyn for their many acts of kindness and charity. But Mortimer has just learned that his charming spinster aunts have taken to relieving the loneliness of old men by inviting them in for a nice glass of homemade elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and "just a pinch" of cyanide! What else can go wrong? How long can Mortimer keep other crazy relatives in his family tree hidden?
ARSENIC AND OLD LACE is presented by special arrangement with DRAMATISTS PLAY SERVICE, INC.
Possum Point Players is supported, in part, by grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
