La Mirada Theatre: Arsenic & Old Lace

Arsenic & Old Lace: January 24 – February 16

Combining murder and mayhem with zany humor, here’s an uproarious black comedy that gives “hospitality” a bad name. Meet Abby and Martha Brewster, two spinster sisters known for their acts of charity -- which lately includes poisoning lonely, old men with arsenic-laced elderberry wine. When their nephew finds out about the corpses in the cellar, he’s in a frantic race to deal with his aunts, his fiancée, and two crazy brothers – one who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt and one who is a dead-ringer for Boris Karloff! Don’t miss one of America’s most popular comedies in a spiffy new production that will slay you with laughter!
