Arsenic and old Lace plays to varied emotions

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

What do you get when you take a gallon of dark humor dark humor, a teaspoon of farcical comedy and just a pinch of gothic horror?

One of the most enduring and popular plays in the American playbook, Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring.

The story of two charitable sisters, played by Corina Otani and Karen Bedont, who run a boarding house upstairs and populate their cellar with the remains of socially acceptable roomers after poisoning them with a little elderberry wine, homemade, of course.

Mix in their nephew... who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, their murderous nephew Jonathon, who received a bad facelift by his alcoholic accomplice Dr. Einstein, and poor Mortimer Brewster, the sisters' other nephew, trying to stay sane in the midst of the chaos... and you have a perfect recipe to a dark comedy that continues to charm audiences everywhere.

Arsenic and Old Lace, presented by The Castle Valley Community Theatre, directed by Pete Yokovich. May 2nd through May 12th. Friday, Saturday and Monday evenings at 7pm with a matinee on Saturday at 1pm at the Price Civic Auditorium. Ticket prices are $7.
