When you go home to share the happy news of your engagement, the last thing you expect to discover is that your family's gone completely crazy. But that's exactly what happens to Mortimer Brewster. One uncle thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt at the Panama Canal, another uncle has been transformed by plastic surgery into a Boris Karloff-style monster, and his spinster aunts have taken to poisoning lonely men and burying them in their basement. In this hilarious dark comedy, originally written for the stage in 1939 and later made into a beloved Frank Capra film starring Cary Grant, poor Brewster has to juggle his pre-marriage jitters with family antics and meddling police. This production is from The Company, a high school theater arts program that includes both students and theater professionals. See Arsenic and Old Lace in Loomis at Del Oro Performing Arts Center.
