Arsenic and Old Lace
Written by Joseph Kesselring
Directed by Michael Ross

This iconic black comedy by American playwright Joseph Kesselring, written in 1939, and directed by award winning Michael Ross (GYSPY! Always, Patsy Cline). Debuting on Broadway in 1941, it ran for three years and over fourteen hundred performances. Exploring themes of family loyalty, nature versus nurture, and whether we can ever truly break away from our family’s influence, Arsenic and Old Lace was praised for its dark, screwball comedy tone with The New York Times theater critic declaring it one of the funniest plays he’d ever seen! We’re betting this zany, crazy and pure fun show will be one of the season’s favorites!
