• Arsenic and Old Lace


Cathouse Players & Director Bette Sartore and her cast of eleven guarantee that there will be laughs a-plenty when they present this fast-moving, wacky play, "Arsenic and Old Lace" by Joseph Kesselring.

New York theatre critic, Mortimer Brewster is shocked to discover a dead body in a window seat; his spinster aunties, Abby and Martha, have been compassionately serving poisoned home-made elderberry wine, to elderly, homeless men, and that his nutty brother Teddy, has dug graves for them all, fourteen in total, in their cellar.

When Jonathan, his other sadistic brother, unexpectedly arrives, with the mad plastic surgeon, Dr Einstein, Mortimer is convinced he's a member of an insane, homicidal family, and that his engagement to girl-next-door, Elaine, cannot go ahead.

This classic and hilarious madcap comedy ran for three years on Broadway, and now it's Kyneton's turn.
