This spring, Wausau West Drama will present Arsenic and Old Lace, by Joseph Kesselring. When Mortimer Brewster visits his spinster aunts to announce his engagement, he discovers their little secret - they have been poisoning lonely men and burying them in the basement. Throw in one brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt and another who recently had plastic surgery to resemble Boris Karloff, and you have a recipe for murderous mayhem. Mortimer must work to protect his family in this popular dark comedy which later became a film starring Cary Grant.
