The Brewster family traces their lineage back to Mayflower settlers. Two charming, innocent aunts populate their cellar with the remains of socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers as well as a nephew who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt and another nephew whose hobbies are far from mainstream. Mortimer, upstanding head of the family, is soon to marry a minister’s daughter, but his family’s antics are putting their reputation and his nuptials on the line.
“Arsenic and Old Lace is goofy and fun and requires nothing of the audience other than to sit back and watch it play out merrily.” –Inquirer
