Arsen und Spitzenhäubchen
Arsenic and Old Lace
By Joseph Kesselring
Performed in German
Murderous fun - a classic amongst the crime dramas!
The play is a farcical black comedy revolving around the Brewster family, descended from the Mayflower, but now composed of insane homicidal maniacs. The hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, NY, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves.
