About Arsenic and Old Lace
Irresistible fun for the whole family, the Strand Theatre presents Arsenic and Old Lace.
The hilarious misadventures of the Brewster sisters give the holidays a slightly wicked twist. Anxious to help elderly gentlemen find a peaceful and final resting place, the kindly sisters administer a lethal elderberry wine and bury them in the cellar. Add to the madcap mix three nephews: one who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, one who bears an uncanny resemblance to Boris Karloff and one who’s engaged to a minister’s daughter. Toss in a policeman who thinks he’s a playwright, sprinkle with a few corpses and you have the ingredients for a wild and nutty fruitcake – and one of the most hilarious and enduring comedies in American theatre.
