Drama critic Mortimer Brewster’s engagement announcement is upended when he discovers a corpse in his elderly aunt’s window seat. Mortimer rushes to tell Aunts Abby and Martha before they stumble upon the body themselves, only to learn that the two old ladies aren’t just aware of the dead man in their parlour; they killed him!
Between his aunts’ penchant for poisoning wine, a brother who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, and another brother using plastic surgery to hide from the police – not to mention Mortimer’s own hesitation about marriage – it’ll be a miracle if Mortimer makes it to his wedding. ARSENIC AND OLD LACE is a classic dark comedy about the only thing more deadly than poison: family.
