Theatre West Van Presents: Arsenic and Old Lace a Comedy by Joseph Kesselring at the Kay Meek Centre

Event Details

Kay Meek Centre

Our hero, commitment-phobic newspaper drama critic Mortimer Brewster, has to decide whether to follow up on his promise to marry Elaine.

Upon returning to the family home, he discovers his seemingly eccentric family is actually homicidally insane. It includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them as an act of charity; a brother who believes he is Teddy Rossevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar, and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice.

Then the police get involved.
