Good Neighbors Theatre to present Arsenic and Old Lace

Posted May 4, 2018 at 12:42 pm

Mortimer Brewster is living a pretty good life. He has a steady job at a New York newspaper, he’s become engaged, and has two of the most loving aunts anyone could hope for! He goes to visit his aunts Abby and Martha to announce his engagement to Elaine Harper.

His aunts are delighted at the news, but the celebration is cut short when Mortimer uncovers a body and discovers one of his aunts’ more peculiar “charities.”

Although Mortimer has come to terms with his family’s quirks-one of his brothers believes himself to be Teddy Roosevelt-his world is completely turned upside down when he realizes his dear sweet aunts have been poisoning lonely old men and burying them in the cellar!

To top it all off, Mortimer’s maniacal brother Jonathan returns home with criminal intentions. Mortimer must rally to protect his aunts, and keep his fiancee, and maintain his own sanity.
