The Arts Company offers this description of the production on its website:
“Meet the charming Brewster sisters who populate their cellar with the remains of lonely, old men; their nephews — Teddy, who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt; Jonathan, insane and out for revenge; Mortimer, who tries to figure a way out of the whole mess; and a bevy of comical characters. Add a dose of poisoned wine, and you will see why Arsenic and Old Lace became one of the longest-running plays on Broadway and a perennial favorite with audiences everywhere.”
