Arsenic and Old Lace at Amelia Community Theatre

Jun 10, 2016 02:00AM
The elderly Brewster sisters lace their homemade wine with arsenic to end the loneliness of lonely old men. Their bugle-blowing nephew thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt and the cellar is the Panama Canal. Another nephew is a criminal who looks like Boris Karloff, and nephew Mortimer is a drama critic! No wonder this is one of the most popular comedies ever staged. Written by Joseph Kesselring and directed by Ron Kurtz.
