By Joseph Kesselring; Apapted by Ernest Kinoy

Directed by Steve Tague

The REP's audio adaptation of Joseph Kesselring's ARSENIC AND OLD LACE 

will have you roaring with laughter as our resident actors portray the colorful characters of the mad Brewster family.

In this theatre classic, drama critic Mortimer Brewster, discovers his seemingly sweet old spinster aunts have a nasty habit of poisoning lonely old men with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with "arsenic, strychnine, and just a pinch of cyanide" and burying them in the cellar of their Brooklyn home.

Add to the mix Mortimer’s crazy brothers Teddy, who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt, and Jonathan, a homicidal fugitive returning home to hide from the law, looking like Frankenstein’s monster thanks to plastic surgery performed by his alcoholic accomplice Dr. Einstein.

The resulting chaos as Mortimer tries to wrangle in his crazy family makes for an uproarious farce, filled with laugh-out-loud hilarity and witty plot twists.

ARSENIC AND OLD LACE will begin streaming online for FREE on Friday, Feb. 26th.

Free Theater & Performance: Comedy / Drama Virtual Theater & Performance Northern Delaware
