Some seniors take up golf, others enjoy painting, but only a select few devote their golden years to that most ancient of hobbies: murder. In Arsenic and Old Lace, you'll meet a pair of kindly spinsters who poison lonely old men and bury them in the basement. They're joined in their charm and eccentricity by one nephew who believes he's Teddy Roosevelt and another who's an escaped convict resembling Boris Karloff. Into this madhouse wanders their other nephew, the relatively sane Mortimer, who must negotiate all this craziness while preserving his relationship with his new fiancée -- and without calling in the cops. Now celebrating their 35th season, Chicago's Saint Sebastian Players stage this beloved black comedy, which was adapted into a famed 1944 Frank Capra film starring Cary Grant.
