Arsenic and Old Lace

The comic mayhem of Arsenic and Old Lace, Joseph Kesseling’s most famous play, has made it a true classic. Much like Abby and Martha’s secret “arsenic” recipe, the combination of screwball comedy and gothic chills is a potent mix, sure to send a few delicious shivers up your spine – but don’t worry, we promise you won’t die laughing.
