Arsenic and Old Lace is a black comedy by American playwright Joseph Kesselring.  The plot centers on the Brewster family, a once elite American bloodline that has now descended into homicidal insanity.  Exploring themes including family loyalty, nature vs nurture, and whether we can ever truly break away from our Family's influence.  Praised for it's dark, screwball comedy tone, Arensic and Old Lace holds it's grasp on being a killer comedy.

"...This need to laugh in the face of darkness that a comedy such as Joseph Kesselring's play Arsenic and Old Lace has such an enduring quality"
