Arsenic and Old Lace
November 14, 2015 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
If you’re looking for something morbidly funny this Fall, consider stopping by Patrick Henry College from November 12-15 and catching one of Eden Troupe’s performances of Arsenic & Old Lace.
Written by Joseph Kesselring, Arsenic tells the story of Mortimer Brewster, a cynical drama critic who finds out that his two dear old aunts have been murdering lonely old men by poisoning their wine. Caught between his psychopathic brother on one side and an annoyingly loyal fiancée on the other, Mortimer struggles to find a way to stop his aunts in their tracks—without turning them into the police.
