10/9 – Arsenic and Old Lace
This Tuesday, October 9th we will be reading the dark comedy ARSENIC AND OLD LACE by Joseph Kesselring.
The play is a farcical black comedy revolving around Mortimer Brewster, 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.
