Arsenic and Old Lace is a play written in 1939 by the American playwright Joseph Kesselring. The Jewel Box production is directed by David Siskin.

Before the film version by Frank Capra and starring Cary Grant, there was this lovable Broadway classic about a drama critic who must put off his marriage because he is caught up in the eccentric activities of his two spinster aunts who serve a most interesting elderberry wine and a brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt. Join Abby, Martha, and Mortimer for this dark comedy where insanity runs in the family.

The farcical comedy runs weekends January 15 through February 6. Tickets are $16 for adults and $14 for seniors/students/military.
