Stay tuned for the announcement of auditions for our upcoming Autumn 2024 play.

 

Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring.  

 

About the Play 

A farcical black comedy revolving around the Brewster family, descended from the Mayflower settlers, but now composed of maniacs, most of them homicidal.

 

The hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, murderous family and local police in Brooklyn, New York, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves, Elaine Harper, who lives next door and is the daughter of the local minister.

 

His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt; and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery to conceal his identity.

All performances are free to the public.
