Arsenic and Old Lace

The Newberry Community Players presents Arsenic and Old Lace February 22 – 24 at The Ritz Theater. The play is a dark, farcical comedy revolving around the Brewster family, who are descended from the Mayflower settlers, but are now composed of insane homicidal maniacs. The hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police in Brooklyn, New York, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves. Tickets $12.
