Arsenic and Old Lace is a clever combination of the farcical and the
macabre, centering around two elderly sisters who's charitable works include
poisoning lonely old men who come to their home looking for lodgings.
Brother Teddy who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt buries the 'yellow fever'
victims in the Panama Canal, conveniently located in the cellar.
Nephew Jonathan, recently escaped from the prison for the criminally
insane, arrives with his alcoholic face-lift surgeon in tow, looking for an
operating room and a place to dispose of a body. Nephew Mortimer is very
busy getting engaged, signing commitment papers, discovering bodies, and
reviewing plays. Police officers are in and out, funeral arrangements
get complicated, the cellar is getting overcrowded, and elderberry wine
continues to flow.
You will laugh out loud at this side splitting comedy starring: Rebecca
Ambrosini, Geoff Brewster, Colin Chisholm, Fred French, Michele Gaudet,
Tim Jason, Josh Lawrence, Colin MacDonald, Barry Matthews, Bryn Rowlands,
Robin Saywood, and Allan Tidgwell.
