Event description
Join Forte Theatre Company for a staged reading of the dark comedy classic Arsenic and Old Lace!

About this Event

Written by Joseph Kesselring in 1939, the plot centers on the Brewster family, a once elite American bloodline that has now descended into homicidal insanity.

The hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, New York, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves, Elaine Harper. With his eccentric aunts, disturbed uncle, and homicidal brother, he starts to realize that his family is even crazier than he thought!

Arsenic and Old Lace has become best known through the film adaptation starring Cary Grant and directed by Frank Capra.

Complimentary appetizer reception at 6:30 pm. Reading at 7 pm. Wine and beer available for purchase. $15/ticket
