Arsenic and Old Lace

Event Date: 
September 20, 2019 - 8:00pm - 10:30pm

The Brewster family is a once-elite American bloodline that has now descended into homicidal insanity. Mortimer Brewster, a drama critic and the most ostensibly normal of his clan, is forced to cover up for his sadistic kin while being torn between family loyalty and his desire to marry the woman he loves. Exploring motifs of family loyalty, nature versus nurture, and whether we can ever truly break away from our family’s influence, Arsenic and Old Lace is a dark, screwball comedy declared one of the funniest plays ever by the New York Times.

Performance Dates: September 13 through October 5
Performance Times: 8 pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays; 2 pm on Sundays
