Arsenic and Old Lace at Pocket Sandwich Theatre

Enjoy the hilarity of this timeless comedy about the crazy Brewster family. Mortimer Brewster, about to announce his engagement, to the preacher's daughter, may be the only sane member of this group. Abby and Martha, his spinster aunts, are "helping" lonely old gentlemen to their heavenly rewards, while his brother, "Teddy Roosevelt," digs the Panama Canal and brother Jonathan has been turned into a Frankenstein look-a-like. Originally written for the stage in 1939 and later made into a beloved Frank Capra film starring Cary Grant, Arsenic and Old Lace is a laugh a minute but beware the elderberry wine.
