Arsenic and Old Lace is a farcical black comedy revolving around the Brewster family, descended from the Mayflower pilgrims. A lot has happened to this family since the early days of their ancestors. Mortimer Brewster pays a surprise visit to his mild-mannered, spinster aunts in their charming, chintz-filled home. He discovers that his aunts are not as mild mannered or innocent as they seem. Dark and deadly secrets spark a series of events beyond his wildest imagination. Throw in an uncle who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt, a murderous brother, who looks like a Boris Karloff, and a host of zany characters, and you have a rollicking good story with a surprise ending that you won’t want to miss!
