Highlands Summer Festival Presents: The Comedy, ARSENIC AND OLD LACE
July 26-27 2012

 

Arsenic and Old Lace is a farcical black comedy written by Joseph Kesselring. Meet Abby and Martha Brewster, the charming and innocent ladies who operate a boarding house, especially for elderly gentlemen. The two spinster sisters interview their potential boarders to ensure they will be socially and religiously “acceptable” roomers and then…… well, perhaps you’ll have to discover for yourself. Their demented nephew, who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt, unwittingly assists in their schemes. A popular movie version of Arsenic and Old Lace featured Cary Grant and Priscilla Lane. Curtain at 8 p.m.
