About the play
"Arsenic and Old Lace" is set in 1941. Two sweet old aunts, Martha and Abby Brewster, take it upon themselves to poison lonely, old men, who have nothing to live for, as an act of charity. Their nephew, Mortimer, has just gotten married, and is trying to negotiate his way around the shenanigans of the house, while trying to keep his new bride from fleeing. Shady brother John returns from a world adventure involving using corpses to change his appearance to allude capture. The merry mayhem continues with bugle-blowing brother Teddy, who is responsible for burial duties.
