The black comedy Arsenic and Old Lace, by Joseph Kesselring, tells the story of Mortimer Brewster, 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 Teddy 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. The unexpected arrival of a third brother, Jonathan, who's on the lam, brings turmoil.
