Arsenic and Old Lace

Friday, May 26

The year is 1941. A large house next to a cemetery in Brooklyn...home of the Brewsters. Let's see...there are the two spinster aunts Martha and Abby, and their nephews - Mortimer, a drama critic recently engaged to the minister's daughter, bugle-blowing Teddy who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, and murderous Jonathan who has eluded capture with the aid of an alcoholic facial surgeon whose last procedure has Jonathan looking like Boris Karloff. The Brewsters can trace their lineage to the Mayflower and there are also trace elements of cyanide, arsenic, and strychnine in the elderberry wine the kind old ladies have been offering to lonely men. So far 12 men have succumbed to the charm and libation of the sweet sisters. Believing they have died from yellow fever, Teddy has buried them in the Panama Canal (the cellar.) The 12th victim rests in the window seat. Charge!
