Arsenic and Old Lace

We meet the charming and innocent ladies who populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously "acceptable" roomers; the antics of their nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; and the activities of the other nephew Jonathan who resembles Boris Karloff are the bane of of their OTHER nephew Mortimer's existence. Will the Aunt's go to jail, will Elaine ever get to stay in the room for more than 3 minutes, will Dr. Einstein get a nap, Will Teddy go to Panama? These questions and so many more can only be answered by attending the show .... just don't drink the wine!
