Arsenic and Old Lace
Presented by Royal Canadian Theatre Company
A classic black-comedy and a Broadway hit starring Boris Karloff before it was adapted for film with Cary Grant, for our version we have reunited the ‘Terrible Trio’ – Jaqueline Becher, Michael Charrois and Steve Weller – who were the extremely odd cousins in our version of ‘Dark and Stormy Night’. This time they are two dotty sisters and their very scary and menacing nephew who comes to visit, complete with his crazy sidekick plastic surgeon. Bodies all over the place, the Panama canal being dug in the basement, another nephew who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, and a cop who wants to be a playwright – just a few of the zany happenings in this perfect Hallowe’en treat.
Some slightly scary situations – suitable for older children.
