Arsenic And Old Lace Returns To The Bay

Lace CastArsenic and Old Lace is a play written by American Playwright Joseph Kesselring in 1939. It opened on Broadway in 1941 and had a three year run with more than 1,400 performances. It became best known through the 1944 film starring Cary Grant and directed by Frank Capra. The play is a farcical black comedy revolving around the Brewster family, composed of insane homicidal maniacs. The hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy family.
