KC Theatre Guild Performing Arsenic & Old Lace
Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring is the dark comedy play that was made popular by the 1944 Frank Capra movie starring Cary Grant! The story revolves around the Brewster family – Mortimer, the drama critic, his brother Jonathan that looks like Boris Karloff, and his brother Teddy who thinks he is Theodore Roosevelt, and their two seemingly sweet aunts, Abby and Martha.
Arsenic and Old Lace will have a free special matinee performance for any interested high school groups on Thursday, November 19 at 9:30 a.m. Please contact Professor David Quinn for reservations for the special performance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The play will also be performed in the Jane Knight Auditorium on Friday and Saturday, November 20 and 21 at 7:00 p.m., and on Sunday, November 22 at 2:00 p.m. All performances are free and no reservations are needed.
