Winter 2014: Joseph Kesselring’s “Arsenic and Old Lace”

Dramatic critic Mortimer Brewster is shocked to discover that his lovely spinster aunts have been running a bizarre charity from their Brooklyn home: Together they take in single old gentlemen and offer them a lasting refuge from themisery of a lonely life -by poisoning them. As Mortimer tries to cover up the whole affair, neither of his brothers prove helpful: One is convinced he’s President Roosevelt, the other shows up with a corpse in the car and more murder on his mind. Hilarity ensues!
