Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring (directed by Martin Leafe)

Theatre critic Mortimer Brewster plans to get engaged to his sweetheart Elaine. But he discovers his two
charming elderly aunts have taken up a gruesome hobby: they “charitably” murder lonely old men by giving
them elderberry wine laced with arsenic! Meanwhile, his dotty brother Teddy, who thinks he is Theodore
Roosevelt, is digging the Panama Canal in the basement – a handy place to bury the bodies. Matters are
made worse by the unwelcome return of his serial-killer brother Jonathan, with his drunk plastic surgeon,
a new face, and a corpse in tow. How can Mortimer stop their murderous antics without giving things away?
And how can he marry Elaine when insanity seems to run in his homicidal family?

Arsenic and Old Lace was a smash hit when it opened in New York and became an all-time classic film.
Join us for a rollicking black farce!

As you may have heard the U3 will not be running between Berliner Tor
and Mundsburg from the 8th May until the end of August. This will
affect our guests coming from the City Centre. There will be a bus
"Ersatzverkehr" but this could lead to delays of 20 minutes. So please

think of this when planning your trip to the theatre in May!
