“The year is 1941. For the clan known as Brewster, insanity runs in the family. Two sweet old aunts take it upon themselves to poison lonely old men with nothing to live for, as an act of charity. Their nephew Mortimer is about to get married, and is trying to negotiate his way around the shenanigans of the house, while trying to keep his prospective bride from fleeing. Shady brother Jonathan returns from a world adventure involving using corpses to change his appearance to allude capture. The merry mayhem continues with bugle-blowing brother Teddy who is charged with burial duties.”

Arsenic and Old Lace, a farcical black comedy’’ remains one of the most popular American comedies of all time!
