Arsenic and Old Lace is a clever combination of the farcical and the macabre, centering around two elderly sisters who's charitable works include poisoning lonely old men who come to their home looking for lodgings. Brother Teddy who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt buries the ‘yellow fever’ victims in the Panama Canal, conveniently located in the cellar.
Nephew Jonathan, recently escaped from the prison for the criminally insane, arrives with his alcoholic face-lift surgeon in tow, looking for an operating room and a place to dispose of a body.
Nephew Mortimer is very busy getting engaged, signing commitment papers, discovering bodies, and reviewing plays. Police officers are in and out, funeral arrangements get complicated, the cellar is getting overcrowded, and elderberry wine continues to flow.
You will laugh out loud at this side splitting comedy starring: Rebecca Ambrosini, Geoff Brewster, Colin Chisholm, Fred French, Michele Gaudet, Tim Jason,
Josh Lawrence, Colin MacDonald, Barry Matthews, Bryn Rowlands, Robin Saywood, and Allan Tidgwell
Bedford Players are proud supporters of Prostate Cancer Canada Atlantic.
