Arsenic and Old Lace is one of the great American comedies. It is a play that makes you laugh out loud from start to finish. In Joseph Kesselring’s delicious dark comedy, we encounter the true meaning of killing with kindness – and elderberry wine!

Good-hearted journalist and drama critic Mortimer Brewster appears to lead a normal, happy life. Engaged to be married to the Reverend’s daughter, Elaine Harper, Mortimer plans a trip to visit his lovable spinster Aunties, Abby and Martha Brewster. Shortly after his arrival at the family home in Brooklyn, he discovers that his innocent, charming Aunties have a deadly secret buried in the basement—about a dozen older gentlemen. To his dismay, Aunt Abby and Aunt Martha believe their poisonous pursuits are charitable acts. Hilarity and madness ensue as Mortimer deals with his homicidal Aunties, as well as his brother Teddy, who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt, and his other brother, the maniacal, murderous Jonathan Brewster, who has recently escaped from prison after committing an international crime spree.
Come and celebrate the bewitching season with The Brewster Family and Lord Stirling Theater Company at the historic English Barn.
