ARSENIC AND OLD LACE
BY JOSEPH KESSELRING
ORIGINAL BROADWAY PRODUCTION BY HOWARD LINDSAY AND RUSSEL CROUSE
DIRECTED BY RON OJ PARSON
Mild-mannered sisters Martha and Abby Brewster live in their spacious Victorian home in a quiet neighborhood in Brooklyn with an eccentric nephew, Teddy. Famed for their hospitality, Martha and Abby are adored by their neighbors and frequently entertain guests. But when their other nephew, Mortimer, discovers his aunts’ macabre secrets, a hilarious chain of events ensue in this character-driven farce. Resident Artist Ron OJ Parson directs this beloved American classic, bringing much-needed humor and healing laughter to the stage in Court’s 2022/23 Season opener.
Arsenic and Old Lace is sponsored by Gustavo Bamberger and Martha Van Haitsma.
