The Bonnie Kate Community Theater will present the stage comedy “Arsenic and Old Lace” October 14-23. Weekday presentations will be at 7:30 p.m. and presentations on Oct. 16 and 23 will be at 2:30 p.m.
The play has a setting of 1941 and presents the story of the charming, innocent and elderly Brewster sisters as they engage in unusual acts of charity. They help lonely old men to find eternal peace, and then bury them in the cellar of their Brooklyn, N.Y. home. Sharing this home is their nephew, who firmly believes he is Teddy Roosevelt. There are two other nephews, Mortimer, a big shot drama critic, and Jonathan, a homicidal maniac who has recently returned to Brooklyn.
Find out what happens when the bodies in the window seat start piling up, and Mortimer must come up with a plan to keep his aunts out of jail, and keep everyone else safe from his entire family. As Mortimer says, “Insanity runs in my family. It practically gallops.”
Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children.
Bonnie Kate Theater is located at 115 S. Sycamore St.
