Arsenic and Old Lace opened on Broadway in 1941. It was an immediate hit and has continued to be one of the most popular American plays for nearly 70 years. The story revolves around the two charming old maid Brewster sisters. Abby and Martha pursue a mission of mercy by helping homeless and lonely men escape a life of sadness by poisoning them and burying the bodies in the cellar. Assisted by Teddy, a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt, all goes well until nephew Mortimer discovers one of the bodies. To further complicate matters, an unexpected visit by brother Jonathan, a serial killer, and his intoxicated friend, Dr. Einstein, throws the family into even more turmoil.
