Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring

The Wall Street Journal Raves! Arsenic and Old Lace is "VERY, VERY FUNNY! A CHARMING REVIVIAL!" Read the Review Here!

The American Classic that Kills with Kindness! Something is fishy in the Brewster household: old men are missing, and there are reports of bodies in the basement. Abby and Martha Brewster are two lonely spinster sisters devoted to charity and good deeds—but their latest charitable endeavor seems to have fatal consequences. Matters are complicated when their estranged nephew (who bears an eerie resemblance to Boris Karloff) shows up unannounced with some sinister plans of his own. Madcap meets the macabre in this perfectly-crafted comedy that's been delighting audiences for over 75 years! Perfect for the whole family!
