Arsenic and Old Lace

A classic dark comedy that is as funny as it is famous, Arsenic and Old Lace centres on the elderly Brewster sisters; the town darlings who have a little secret. Their nephew Mortimer discovers they are “helping” lonely gentlemen boarders to early graves by way of homemade, arsenic-laced wine. Throw in one brother who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, a second who is a murderous criminal on the lam and then the girl next door that Mortimer wants to marry — and you have a recipe for hilarity.
