The story

The black comedy Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring tells the story of the Brewster family. Mortimer Brewster is a famous theatre critic who has to deal with his eccentric family. His sweet aunts, Abby and Martha, have quite unusual hobbies - and some bodies buried in the cellar! Their nephew Teddy, who believes he is T. Roosevelt, completes this crazy household. When Mortimer gets engaged to the beautiful Elaine Harper, he discovers one of the corpses in his aunts' house, turning his romantic evening into a nightmare.
