Arsenic and Old Lace

by Joseph Kesselring

Arsenic and Old Lace: November 30th- December 2nd @ Saybrook Underbrook

This dark comedy revolves around Mortimer Brewster, who discovers one day that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years to try to rid them of their misery! When Mortimer’s maniacal brother, Jonathan, returns on the night that the aunts were planning to bury the newest victim, Mortimer must rally to help his aunts and protect his fiancé – all while trying to keep his own sanity, as well. With a slightly modern spin on this hilarious play, this play provides a comedic break during troubling times!:)
